NaNo2013 – 50k+

Yep!  I did it.

Despite strong winds, thunderstorm watches (and warnings!), and flickering lights, at roughly a quarter to midnight I passed 50k and wrapped up what is probably the worst rough draft I’ve ever written.

But it has promise.  A lot of promise.  A lot of promise that I never expected to come out of it, to be honest.

So, it is going to get revised.  Eventually.  For now it’s going to sit in storage until I am brave enough to look at it again.

(Yes, it’s that bad.)

But it can be great…or at least not cringe-worthy.

So, now that I’ve won NaNoWriMo, I think I’ll give myself a day off from writing (anyone want to take bets on how long that lasts?) and do some counted cross stitch or something.

And then I’m going to work on Sanguine because it’s what I’ve been using for Sunday Snippets and I really want to finish it.  And, really, there’s not that much more needed to finish the rough draft:  I might even be able to get it done in what’s left of this month and start editing in December while I get back to work on writing The Academy of the Accord series.

I still want to hold to getting The Other Mages trilogy done next year, too, so I’ll be starting on that project in January.

(Someday I will have a lot fewer works in progress to juggle…)
