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.


  1. I know it makes you happy being creative Cathy, so you must be feeling very pleased, well done.

  2. Yes you are correct Linda. I am very happy when I am being creative. Thank you for stopping by and commenting :)
