I'm a little lost for words right now because I just submitted my other blog post, and as tempted as I am to just copy/paste all of that here, I'll let Writers & Artists have the bulk of my victory cheer for now.
I've learned lessons, made mistakes, fudged a few things here and there, and no, I'm nowhere near a real first draft, but I've got my confidence up again, which is always the biggest hurdle for me to climb. It's going to take a lot of work to get White Rabbits readable, but if the story holds out, it will all be worth it in the end.
I guess it's time for me to update my list of titles, now, eh? It's still early, but, let's face it, post NaNo novel completion is like pulling teeth. And this one has a lot of teeth that need pulling. I won't abandon it, though. I'll just clean it up, and start fresh. Remember, I've vowed to have this draft done before February, so if don't do it, let the come of shame videos begin!
Best of luck to those who are still racing against the clock today! I'm still cheering you on!
And if you've been following my journey: THANK YOU! Just knowing that someone's waiting to hear about my progress gives me that extra push to see it through.
Now, where's my celebratory ice cream?!?!
