November was going pretty well, in fact I was even keeping a NaNo pace at the start. And then Pokemon Sun/Moon came out. I’m sure you can fill in the blanks ;p
As for the actual goals I completed Sugar Cane and Swam Monsters at 15,000 words, and I completed Glass Slippers rewrites at 39,000 words. The edits aren’t quite finished, I still need to do a read through and a scour through before it goes to beta readers, but considering how many new words went into and shuffling of scenes and ideas and subsequent fact/continuity checking this is still a pretty good result. Sadly, I didn’t get around to Charming Rivals or ‘Skeleton Romance’, though I did a lot of thinking about ‘Skeleton Romance’ and its climax.
For December I’m keeping the goals light as school lets out early so I’ll have both kids all day every day – except when I go to work! I want to:
- Finish Glass Slippers edits and get it to betas
- Complete edits based on writers group feedback of Charming Rivals
- Complete (or at least continue) ‘Skeleton Romance’ first draft
I’d love to have December as a ‘race to the finish’ but we’ll see how things go.
