I finished my NaNoWriMo story. Not only did I reach the goal of 50K words, I also ended the story. What I’ve learned from this experience is that I’m capable of cranking out a full novel within less than a month. It’s not perfect and it’s basically a super rough and dirty draft but the story is done.
Goals going forward:
- Take a break from Marlowe and work on finishing Aeva.
- Publish Aeva.
- Write new story I’ve been itching to start.
- Continue with first edit of TLS fantasy novel.
- Return to Marlowe and clean it up.
- First edit of Marlowe.
Here is a cut-and-paste from my Nano page with the updated “Marlowe” synopsis (still somewhat rough) and an excerpt. The excerpt is the scene just after Marlowe fights a cyborg that detonated.
