NaNoWriMo: Accomplished!

nano_09_winner_120x240I reached just over 53,000 words in 28 days. Not too shabby!

So what does this mean now? Well, aside from officially getting to post the neat little picture to the left, I have a new (mostly completed) manuscript.

To pitch this novel to the publishers I’m aiming for, I will end up with around 70,000 words, so I’m going to keep my pace and get the rest finished. Then, polishing and pitching time!

What did I learn? I re-learned my love of writing. After spending years writing, rewriting, editing and tweaking In Dawn’s Shadows, I’m a little sick of that process. So letting the creative juices flow for this new project was a true relief. This acted as a nice respite from In Dawn’s Shadows as well.

So, off I go to write write write some more. I can’t wait for next November!!
