A few days ago while at our Nano write in, I broke the big 50k!!! And not only that, I actually got to write ‘The End.’ Yay!
So, now what? My brain feels melted and empty of words but that’s ok. I have a finished first draft of a novel, so the work, endless computer time and brain drain were so worth it.
Every writer has their own plan for what to do after they finish a project. For me, usually I take a two week break and go back to it. But being the time of year it is, I plan to take a longer break from it.
I will do a tweak to it. We started something new at my writers group where we pick a random card and we have our goal for the next meeting. I picked ‘Edit/polish a short story or novel chapter.’ So, I will do that since I already know how I want to edit chapter one. But after that I won’t touch it again until the new year.
That’s if I don’t start a new novel project that has been burning in the back of my brain for a little while now.
So, how did you survive Nano? Are you almost at the finish line or are you way behind? What will you do when the month is over?
