NaNoWriMo: Day Twenty-Eight – DONE!

Winner-2014-Web-Banner

Since my last post on NaNoWriMo, things went relatively smoothly. With a number of scenes still to play with in my outline, I picked out the ones I wanted to write most and went with them for the final stretch.

This morning, after my usual few hundred words before work, I still had around 2800 words to go. I expected I’d save a lot for Saturday.

But during the day, I thought, “Nah. I’m finishing tonight.”

So in the time before Agents of SHIELD came on, I got up to 48,812 words. And when that was over, I jumped to my final scene for the last burst. I really didn’t want to reach this point with any words other than “The End” – and that’s what I did.

And that’s it for another year. It was certainly a tough one – I didn’t manage to write a totally cohesive story in the end, though it was more so than some of my earlier efforts, and I probably would have fallen apart if not for all the planning I did before hand. (Yep, the Snowflake Method is the way to go.) Like I already said, I don’t expect to do much more with this particular novel. But now I have a whole weekend to figure out what to write about next.

Hi, my name's Richard. I created this blog to talk about my interests - and I have quite a few of those. I love zoology in general, herpetology in particular (especially snakes!), writing (have won National Novel Writing Month seven times so far, plus three Camp Nanowrimos), reading, astronomy, palaeontology, and travel. Thank you for coming to my blog, and I hope you find something that interests you here!
