Like last year, I went AWOL this month so I could do NaNoWriMo, which challenges you to write a 50,000-word novel between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30. I hit 50,010 about fifteen minutes ago. Also like last year, what I wrote isn't very good, though I think slightly improved on last year. All that is fine, since the point of NaNoWriMo is to just sit down and write, and to not worry about it it's any good. And who knows, maybe there is something salvageable here on a rewrite. Even if there isn't, it was a hell of a lot of fun, and it was great practice.
Unlike last year, my story didn't finished around the 50,000 mark. I probably have another 10,000 to go before it wraps up, which I plan on doing at a more leisurely pace. And expect live posting here to resume on Wednesday.
