The NaNo aftermath. I’m toasted more than usual. Burned. Well, maybe not that bad, but that’s me talking today and not yesterday.
First off, I’m not going to talk about words written, because they were irrelevant long before the month concluded (I almost tripled my goal. Scary.) Just know, the number is ridiculous. I had no life for a month.
Ah, but did I finish? Yeah. There’s a book and there’s a story and characters in that story. The story I’m telling here, though, is the cautionary tale contained in my post-draft report. I want anyone out there whose draft went astray to know they aren’t alone.
Given this was Bk4 where the other three books have seen minimal editing I won’t be looking at it again for a long while. There’s minimal editing on Bk1, none on Bk2, and Bk3 should be labeled: under reconstruction.
Wait a minute. What was I thinking writing the fourth book already? Good question.
