Although I have been declared a "winner," I am kind of sad that I finished as early as I did. It would have been fun to cross the finish line with so many of you that did so today, and those who are still attacking their keyboards with pure determination! GO YOU!!!!!
So tomorrow is December 1st - time for finals at school, and Christmas shopping? well, yes.... but it's now time for me to dust off my 16 day novel, and take a look at what I have done. It's time to sit down and have an intimate conversation with each chapter, and to weave in the ribbons that will tie the book together.
Am I scared? Absolutely! -- Will I succeed? -- Absolutely!
The rewriting process is not something to approach lightly, and I plan on being completely dedicated to this book.
So what is next for you? A month off? more? Will you be starting a new book right away?
Congratulations Nano-writers - YOU DID IT! and if you didn't -- there is always next month! <3
As a child, I would scribble on notebook paper pretending to be writing stories. I could not read at that point, but I was persistent at making sure that others would listen to the words that I claimed I had written. I chose books that allowed for me to get lost within the twisting drama and drawn out love stories. I would pretend that I was the main character, reacting in shock if she was in shock, and devastated if she was devastated. Now I write, creating my own adventures, and breathing life into characters that have been inside of me for a long time. The passion that I feel with each word that I write can only be described through the characters I write about. I am a fly by the seat of your pants kind of writer. Most of the time I do not know what the character will be doing until he or she is doing it. It keeps it interesting, and allows me to live life right beside them. If I never become a published writer, I will always have my characters and for me that is the write life!
