Just a little moment of back-patting for me, on finishing 2016’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, for those not in the know) on the very last day with a final word-count of 50,253. Could’ve done better — but I also could have dropped the ball like I’ve done for the past ~ten years by either not bothering or by trying to start a new NaNo project while I was in the middle of working on a main novel project.
This makes three and a half chapters of the rough draft of my fifth novel, tentatively titled The Drowning Dark, in the War of Memory Cycle. The fourth, The Bloodied Army, is still unavoidably delayed, but hopefully 2017 will be a good publication year for me.
Cheers, all you NaNo successes and everyone who tried! Getting any creative endeavor done this month is a miracle in itself.
