YAHOOOOOOO!


I did it. I did it. It took me to 10:15 PM tonight, but by God, I did it.

I finally let the inner editor take over, because she had a great idea. Just write. Who cares if it is truly, completely coherent? No... not quite. But the inner editor has had the great idea to stretch this thing out a little more, so the last bit of the novel is actually from that idea .... it doesn't make perfect sense in the original flow of the story, but it's another place to start.

The thing is, I can see the novel really take form. This initial portion of it is just the beginning. There's going to be a lot of editing as I go along to get it to the form I see for its future.

If you are one of the thousands who've also done the NaNoWriMo with me this month, CONGRATULATIONS! WE DID IT! And if you've never done it, then think about it for next year. It's crazy fun!

Congratulations, Annette!!!! WOO HOO!!!

Will you be doing it again next year? I think I definitely am going to... I am probably crazy for thinking about it already, but what the heck.

Three cheers ... and a well-deserved long sabbatical for the writing arm for you.

Happy December!

And oh, by the way, let's keep up the good feeling here - I know it's been a week, but I must do this again. Make sure the full effect kicks in on this one...

Congrats on a huge accomplishment!
