Might as well call this post "No I am not done yet."
Took me the better part of an hour and a half to get through another 2866 words tonight. This is still a great rate of production, and while I don't necessarily mind how the scene has gone, I really don't like where the story ended ultimately. I'll write up the closing tomorrow and set it down for at least all of December.
But the writing process is not done and I'm hoping that I'll have gained the discipline to continue working on into December on other projects, ultimately to fulfill my goal of getting published. I would like to have something out there for 2012. I would like it so much that I am making it my only goal for the year.
This particular challenge is almost over. I've had a lot of fun this year. I did go back to my posts from last year and saw that I had decided I would outline the whole novel for this year. Yeah - that went well...
Maybe next year I'll try that. Maybe by this time next year I'll be in a position to say, "Hey - let's actually get something publishable out of NaNo" and maybe I'll still be doing it just for the fun and the challenge.
Who knows? I certainly don't. But before I can get to next year - I still have a little bit to finish for this year. 2629 to be precise. Though - that said - it might be a little more or less - I don't really know. I should probably go check, but I think I'd rather get through the rest on my own and then figure out what I need after the fact.
Total word count: 47371 (972 behind pace)
1 day to go: 2629 words to finish.
