Just in time for fun?
On Saturday I finished my NaNo novel, which was a goal I was happy to meet. This novel was a lot of fun to write but was also frustrating, but that's to be expected, books hardly ever just write themselves without complications. I also learned a lot about myself as a writer, specifically that I can just take an idea and run with it as long as the idea is strong enough. That doesn't mean I've turned my back on plotting, but writing a book without one sure was interesting. It's also nice that I finished in time to focus on the holidays and having some fun, since my best friend and I will be getting our vaca on in FL on Thursday, heading to Orlando and Daytona Beach. Hopefully it's warm enough that I can reclaim five days of summer weather. I've been so writing focused for the past few months that I think I'll take a little break and start up again in the new year....editing, querying, and all that fun.
