Yes, I survived Nano, and with a few lovely badges as well, which you can find HERE. Aren’t they lovely? So you are all now wondering how did it go? Well, it went. What I have found out about Nano is that yes I can write 50,000 in 30 days, but the writing isn’t wonderful. As the goal of Nano is to just write, don’t revise or correct along the way, I now have quite the revision ahead of me. But, I do know most of the areas that need some work as well as the areas that need more explanation. I found that I spent a lot of my time making notes to myself such as: “Chapter 7 is icky. Go back and rework….or…Relationship with Lucas, so not feeling it. Go back and add. Seriously, I have a page and a half of notes like that to myself. Oh the revision I am dreading.
The story however, is pretty good. So far. Lots of new character and lots of action and quite the ending even if it is me saying so. However, I am not touching that draft until January 1st..er 5th actually. For now, I am catching up on my reading and all the administrative stuff that goes with being a freelance writer (loads of it..yeesh!)
On a separate note, look to the right of my blog and you will see, yep, the new and lovely cover for Shadow Warrior. Isn’t it beautiful? You can look for it around January 15, 2012. I will confirm the release date as we get closer as well as provide links to where to find it.
Lastly, my latest contribution to an anthology is out. If you would like to check it out, you can find it HERE. It’s a cute little evil story.
