I finished my first NaShoWriMo story. It clocks in at about 5500 words, which, once again, is longer than 4000. Oh well, one of these days I will write another story under 4000 words. I think (hope?) I’ll end up cutting a couple hundred from this story once I get around to editing it (December is apparently editing month, January is submission month. Weee). For anyone on OWW it’s now up there. I figured for the kick-off story, I’d post it for fun (and comments?). I don’t think I’ll be posting any of the future stories there until they’ve seen one edit at least (I didn’t even give this one a read over).
So it begins. Day 3 and I’ve completed one story. Time to decide today what’s next. I’m thinking something short and on the sillier side, because I really don’t want to have to process information right now. Insomnia is kicking my ass. But hey, time to write! Now, to spend a few hours building the next story in my head. This one will have less research attached, damnit. I’m going to make it up whole cloth so I don’t have to spend nine hours reading about flora and fauna and names and rivers and yeah… I just love research too much. Grr.
One story down, at least 11 more to go.
