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?
