I mentioned earlier that I had been participating in National Novel Writing Month this year. I can’t say for sure whether I enjoyed the experience: trying to write so many words in a month (or a day) takes away the leisurely, pleasant feel of writing. That being said, I got a lot out of NaNoWriMo. For the majority of the time, I was able to consistently write every day.
I didn’t manage to hit 50,000 words though.
So…yeah, I failed to complete the challenge. But, on the bright side, I was still able to fully write another volume of The Golden Lands. No single volume in my series has ever been as long as 50,000 words, so I wasn’t surprised when I finished the book before hitting the required word count. I tried to start writing the next volume, and then combining it with the former one, but…time ran out.
We seventeen-year-old homeschoolers just don’t have enough time on our hands *sigh*.
But at least there is a bright side! Another volume is complete!
