Are you done with your Nano story? Still writing? Never going to look at it again?
I'm still writing mine. I got the 50,000, wrote another 5k, and stalled. Finally two days ago everything started to fall into place. Unfortunately, that means that a lot of my story is going to have to be reworked. A lot came out just now that I wasn't planning to have happen, so big chunks of my writing are now useless. But, I'm feeling really good about what I wrote, and I'm determined to both finish this draft and go back and edit and keep going. I want to get it "finished" or at least making sense. Even if I'm not going to do anything with it, it would still be nice to have a finished story and be able to say, "yeah, I wrote this." Sort of like a reminder to myself that hey, I wrote a book, I can do anything now. There's no stopping me! Haha, it would be a nice feeling to have it written. My dad seems to think that eventually I'll be able to edit it to a point where I'll be able to see if I can get it published, but I'm not so sure about that. It's kind of hard for me to see it where it is now, basically a fleshed out outline, to an actual manuscript. But I'm pretty proud of it, and of myself for actually getting this far in writing without tearing it up and throwing it out.
So what are your plans?
That's great, Amelia! I haven't looked at mine since I finished it, but after Christmas I plan to read it and see if it's worth editing. I'm just glad I was able to finish the story and hit the word count my first time out with NaNo. It was a fun challenge. :)
