And with that, we close out National Novel Writing Month.
This year’s attempt was a qualified success: 51,001 words, breaking the 50,000 minimum, but the story’s not yet done. Also, there were a lot of places where the writing was sub-par or stretched out in the interest of word count. I always have a hard time writing to a number instead of an idea. That’s been the case since I first started writing essays.
But it’s a success, and I plan to do some editing on it this time around. Who knows? Maybe it’ll even turn into something worthwhile with a little work.
