The End! (of October Madness)

Tonight, I crossed the finish line of October Madness.  I didn’t miss a single day, even through being sick and having a root canal.  (And that’s saying something–dental work messes me up like there’s no tomorrow.)

I now have thirty-one fresh, shiny story starts ready to be explored and expanded in November.  I’ve decided that I am doing NaNoWriMo, although it’s more of a NaShoStoWriMo, for me, as I’ll be writing my 50,000 words on short stories instead of a novel.  I’m energized and excited to dive in when tomorrow rolls around.

My word count for October came in at 19,585, less than half of what I intend to put out in November.  That’s okay.  I can do it.  I have faith in myself and belief in my work.

What a word rush!

  1. Writing 50,000 words from the 31 story starts you have now should be easier than pulling nearly 20,000 words from new ideas. There are probably at least 5 or 6 of those starts that will almost write themselves for you once you get into their groove. You may even find that one of those stories jumps the short or novella line as the plot thickens. It's been know to happen to me before.Anyway, have fun with it.
