Due to family issues I figured out I only actually wrote 16 days this month – so I am pretty pleased with the result. The official “winner” manuscript generated 50,639 words – a modest average of 3,165 per day for the 16 days that I did write. Mind you, the novel itself isn’t done. I figure I have another 10-15,000 words to get it to complete status and then a hell of a rewrite to get the style and voice that I really want for it cemented it. So, don’t expect to be reading “The Shifting Sands” any time soon – months from now, maybe.
In the meantime, of course, you can still read “Firedancer” which, in celebration of the completion of NaNoWriMo, will be free on Kindle over the weekend.
Still, I’m quite pleased with what I wrote. This story is a very honest story, brutally honest in that there is way more of me in this than anything I have ever written. It will be interesting to put it out for the world to read.
