NaNoWriMo ends today – and I managed to finish and upload my first draft this morning. There was a slight hiccup when I ran out of story at 49,606 words, but I went back and added a bit to an earlier scene which was sufficient to tip me over the 50K threshold. 2011-Winner-Certificate
Of course, it’s a very rough and ready first draft, and there are many holes and problems still to sort out. But at least it’s a place to start from – so much less intimidating than a blank screen.
And guess what, tonight I’m just going to settle down and read a book – not attempt to write one! 😉
