The end of the month, that is.
I’m looking forward to it. By the end of November, I will be (finally!) done with the first draft of my very first novel.
(I’m vibrating with excitement.)
Thought I’m not officially participating in NaNoWriMo, I’ve taken it upon myself to whip (upcoming pun intended) up a few writers over on SFFWorld.com to finish their WiPs (works in progress) during this National November Writing Month (is that what it stands for?). And I do have to admit, it is working. Something about knowing that hundreds of other writers are out there making a concerted effort to finish their own novels is somehow inspirational and motivates one to…well, write.
My daily word count is not what I thought it would be, but I am writing every day and I’m only four story-days away from the end of my novel. Of course, once completed, it will be time to edit, insert the donkey, layer on the country-side descriptions, fix plot holes, tie all the themes together, correct some character inconsistencies, and so on.
Despite the amount of work that all entails, I can’t wait!
HE, if you’re still out there – get ready for tons more reading to come your way December 1st. 🙂
Word Count (roughly):
10,000 from Nov 1st to Nov 11th, 2010
41,500 from June, 2009 to Oct 31st, 2010
