Above is the certificate I won for finishing NaNoWriMo. I crossed the line a day early with 50,0042 words. Considering how many thousands of words I was behind a week in, I’m justifiably pleased with having finished early.
Below is another picture I can also proudly display.
I spent almost all of this NaNoWriMo writing down the backstory of perhaps my most dynamic character, Artemis Arrowsmith. This material will appear in flashback scenes in the second and third books.
Last year I wrote much of the second book for NaNoWriMo. All told, between what I wrote last year and this year, I have over 300 pages of material for the first-draft of that novel. I plan to spend the next year turning that into a completed work. I’ll keep you informed of my progress.
That’s all for now. Have fun everyone.
