AND DONE! I decided to finish this evening, rather than stretch it out over this week. Which means once I’m done writing this article, I’m bound for home, and then reading Cold Days by Jim Butcher. YAY ME! Writing today was not the easiest writing session but by no means the hardest. I got to a scene that was actually slightly in my outline and so I knew what was supposed to happen. There was still a lot of making stuff up, but as you can see I wrote nearly six thousand words in about four hours, so it was pretty easy-going. I was focused!

NaNoWriMo 2012

I am not sure if I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo next year. This year was fun, if hectic, but I might be getting to a point where I really want to sit down and write something that is well planned out as I write, and not just worry about word counts. Three NaNos in a row have proven I can meet  a word count. Now I want to see if I can make something really finish with a coherent plot.

Monster Hunters

So monster hunters is getting shelved for now. It’s a neat idea but it was too complex for NaNoWriMo. It needs polishing before I can pick it back up again, and I want to redouble my efforts on Everlasting before I do that, or tackle a few of the short stories I have running around my head. Fans of Monster Hunters need not fear. I have the entire project saved and backed up, including some awesome notes and research ideas suggested by some friends to improve the quality of the novel later. So when I revisit it, I’ll be even more awesome. Until then!
