NaNoWriMo - it's all over
Today marks the end of NaNoWriMo for 2011. I wrote at the beginning of the month that I wasn't going to participate, but then I changed my mind. I changed my mind because of a blog post by one of my favourite Australian authors, Lisa Heidke. I didn't write 50,000 words. My total is just over 10,000 words; but I am totally content with that. Unlike last year's attempt, I actually quite like my story and I do want to continue writing this manuscript, but I am going to develop where I want my story to go first. Developing some of my characters has been great fun too.
It has been a very creative month in terms of new ideas as well. I have also come up with different ideas for other books as well. I will have to decide which one to go with first. Needless to say, whichever one I pick, I will be developing more of a story line before jumping in totally blind.
