NaNo Triumph in 18 Days!

I did it. It's been an amazing experience, since I got to start the month at a writers retreat. When I got home I worked through some kinks with my new Dragon software (you talk, it types). I'd tried my hubby's version a couple of years ago but really stumbled over my desire to edit as I went. Three NaNo wins, and I've pretty much overcome that tendency for first drafts. It worked like a charm and really upped my word count.

The book's not finished, but I've been glossing over some sections I know have to be included as I'd been waiting on expert input from a family member. My goal used to be to beat NaNo before Thanksgiving. Now my goal is to finish the book.

  6. Atta girl! I knew you could do it. Some day when nobody wants to come home for Thanksgiving, or wants us to come there, I might do Na-No. My biggest problem is finishing the projects I've started.
