The End is Near!
NaNo is nearly over for the year. The general feeling runs from either 'Thank God!' to 'Not yet!' I'm dropping slowly through the last few days because I did something that I never thought I would do. I have already written over 200,000 words in November, and I really don't need to push for much more. The third novel is at 47,314, and I just need to bump it up over 50,000 to officially count it as a NaNo novel.
I am also about 13,000 words short of one million this year. Aside from The Time and the Place (the third NaNo Novel), I have one other novel to finish the rewrite on -- Such Gifts as These. I also have an outline to work on, and that's going to be my major work in December because I would like to do some research with it and get it all nice and pretty for 2006 writing.
So today I'm back to real world work. Opened up some DTF stuff and started back on it. If I can get it all cleared up by the end of the month I won't have to do any work in December for it except for the new marketing stuff. Sounds like fun.
Russ will be home in a few hours. The house is in pretty good shape, despite that I barely left my office. I seem to remember walking around picking things up whenever I got stuck. Or sweeping. (grin)
But that's it.
Here are the graphics to my three NaNo novels:
Total words: 102,619
Total words: 50, 191
Total words: 47,314 (and still working)
It was a good NaNo year!
