Okay, I admit it. I really wanted to see that 50,ooo word mark. Even though I knew that it was the novel that was more important. I need to finish. And I did. I didn’t have much of a social life and my blogging dropped to almost zero, but I have achieved something I didn’t think possible: a whole novel (well most of it) in one month.
Typically, this process takes about six months and has lots of ups and downs. Most of these are spurred on my my inner editor. It’s nice to know that I can shut that guy up. Even if it’s only in November during a contest.
But seriously, I need to nap.
