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.
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.
