Hello May!

  Hello people! Hello world!

 Well, I did it. I wrote a little over 50,000 words in April and successfully accomplished my Camp NaNoWriMo goals. But that is not all, I also finished the first draft of my story! *sets off fireworks and dances a wild jig* Yes, it is all thrilling and exciting. I finally finished writing an actual novel-length book. It is a very satisfying feeling to look at the combined word count number of the story and it is also very satisfying to know that I only started writing it last July- July 1st to be exact.

 *deep, happy sigh*

 Now, I have to let it rest for a little while before I go through for edits. I definitely need a little time from it or else I might completely tear it apart. I am debating what I should work on in the mean time. There are a number of short stories I want to finish but then I also want to start working on another novel using Scrivener. I just bought the Scrivener program and cannot wait to explore everything you can do with it.

 Anyhow, with Camp NaNo over I will be able to resume my normal blogging schedule. I am not sure yet what I am going to post about next. For a while now I have been wanting to do a post on why Rio Grande (1950) became one of my favorite westerns, but I need to watch it again before I work on that. Oh well, we'll just have to see.

Have any of you ever used Scrivener? What sort of posts do you enjoy reading here?


  1. YAY!!! Congratulations!!! That's SO EXCITING!! Isn't it an awesome feeling to finish the first draft? Yay!!!

    Oh, let me know how you like Scrivener! I've heard so much about it but I've never used it. It sounds really great!!

  2. Congratulations on finishing!

    Oh, I'll be looking forward to that post on Rio Grande whenever you write it! That's been my favorite Western for years.
