NaNoWriMo: 140,182

Not the grandest finish; if I didn’t get sick, have a trip in the middle of things, and get guilt-tripped at work, I probably would have gotten more done and finished the second book with ideally 160k on the docket. I did not, but I’m cool with that now.

Now is the time keep writing to the bitter, bitter end, so that I can start working on the (massive) rewrite of the first book.

Actually, I might just hit the rewrite straight off, or at least start the analysis for it. There are quite a few things that I learned, and application will be somewhat destructive but quite fun in the meantime.

In the meantime, back to being sick. Gah.

  1. Meh!”Not the grandest finish.”You did in a month what would take me over a year to accomplish. In fact, you’ve outdone me for most of 2007 by 100,000 words.I am honestly jealous. I be ecstatic if I could accomplish even half that on a regular basis.Anyway, hope you get better.

  2. LOL, Ed! I was going to write that (the “Dude!” line) but you stole it! Seriously, AJ, you did great and should be proud of yourself. Plus, 140K+ is that much closer to the end.Now, take your meds, drink lots of fluids, and, dammit, feel better! (I keep on telling you to feel better and you keep on ignoring me! ;-D)Jeanne

  3. Ed and Jeanne, thanks for the boostering (ah, writers, we are so fickle with ourselves…) and the get-well wishes. :)I am getting better; I feel less dead today and spent time on the couch watching the snow outside and, for once, just writing from time to time on index cards rather than madly typing words words words.I listen in the end, Jeanne. ;)

  4. Dude! I have under half your words and I’m in fourth place!Be glad with your output and feel better.

  5. I will, Mary, on both counts. :) Your support through GTD has been awesome, by the way, and I really appreciate it. Many hugs.
