This is the first time I have finished an entire novel in one month, and I'm sooooo proud of myself.

I've written over 100,000 words in NaNo before. Did that last year. But I didn't finish the novel until January of this year because of some real life problems.

This time, I set out what I intended to do. I finished the entire novel in one month.

The best part? It's pretty lean. I'll need to flesh out a few areas, I think. Add a little more description and make sure the emotions I want are in place.

Only a couple of dead-end scenes to take out. They were experiments and I'll use them else-where. But, they're probably not even a page worth of writing.

I have a plot twist I might put in upon rewriting, but haven't made a definite decision on that yet.

Might go with the plot the way it is and just see if anything new evolves on rewrite.

This will probably be the easiest edit/revise I've had.

I had days when I let my insecurities get the best of me, but over-all, this is probably the cleanest novel I've written.

I resisted the urge to pad just to hit NaNo word counts. I even cut out stuff that I knew I'd cut out on rewrite anyway. I am really serious about this novel and did NOT want to leave myself stuck with clutter when I was done.


Broken Mirrors is finished. I don't have time to post my meters and such this morning, but I'll do that when I get home from work.

I think I'll start on the next novel in the series since I still have four NaNo days left. :)

Then I have to get to work on the screenplays.

No rest.
