NaNoWriMo 2016 Finale

Hello Folks!  Late last night came a miraculous point.  I finished my novel for National Novel Writing Month 2016.  I finished with just over 50,000 words.

NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner's Certificate

This time around I feel like I have come to a solid ending for Shao Island.  I also feel that the story has a much more concrete plot.  That doesn’t mean it is over yet.  NaNoWriMo 2016 also comes with the option to make a revision pledge.  As soon as this is available I plan to do so.

I have ordered from FedEx store two bound copies of Shao Island.  I will keep one copy, unmarked to have as a reminder of NaNoWriMo 2016.  The other copy will be used to make edits and further revise my novel.

Lastly, I want to thank NaNoWriMo for hosting such a great event.  Every year I look forward to November because it is the one month that I feel forced to write in.  It is also an inspiring month.  I feel like it helps me be creative and let loose on the page.

Stay tuned because I have more posts coming about NaNoWriMo 2016.  These will include a spotlight on Novlr.org, the service I used to write this year’s novel, a review of the quality of the FedEx prints, revision updates, and more details about Shao Island.  I have been told that people really liked the original constant updates with samples from the original Shao Island and will do something similar as the days go on.
