Last night I put my baby to bed at 3 am. The baby being the massive piece of writing that I've been attempting for the entire month of November. It's finished at the bare minimum of 50119 words, but it's finished. Yay!!
It was fun to participate in NaNoWriMo, as to if I'll ever do it again?? I'll have to wait to say. It depends on how long it takes to recover from November, lol. They do have great organization and lots of pep talks to keep the writers going.
In a few days, I'll go back to edit out some of the really bad parts, and believe me, there are plenty. But maybe I can make the good parts stand out a little more. I don't know if it will ever be book length, but it might make an interesting short story one day.
Here's a short synopsis of the NaNoWriMo entry:
Dory, Illinois is a sleepy little town where a family of witches reside. They've lived there since the persecution committed in Massachusetts so many years ago.
But a great evil has come back to haunt the family and with it, the town. Mysterious deaths have occurred and only the witches will be able to confront and stop it.
Necromancy is the ancient art of reviving the dead, but this necromancer uses the dead for revenge. And ultimately, only one can survive: good or evil.
Okay, maybe a little over dramatic, but it's the basic gist of the story. One day after it's cleaned up and I'm more comfortable with it, I might post a little of it.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and offered words of encouragement! I couldn't have made it through this month without you. I very much appreciated all of your thoughts!
Now I have to get ready for the family get together. It will be an incredibly long day, but well worth the trouble.
