Okay, so, I'm not sure yet about the winning. Each person that takes part in NanoWriMo is declared a winner at 50,000 words. I did indeed hit the target, but since I have not 'finished' the novel as of yet, I really can't say I've won anything. the only thing that matters to me are finished novels.
So, what's the status?
LITTLE BLACK BOOK sits at 51,500 words and I do have the last few chapters mapped out in my mind. I estimate the final first draft total will be 62-65k words. So, even though the contest is won, I will keep going as if I DIDN'T win, because I haven't. Must finish!
The end is in sight and does set up the next book THE CITY. (title tentative)
I'd like to thank those that helped me through the intense sprint that is NaNoWriMo. There are many to thank, but three stand out:
Joshua Neary aka @jdude988
and last, but not least...I have to thank my beautiful wife, Maggie. She gave me inspiration and support. I couldn't have hit 50k words without her.
thanks to the readers that stopped by the blog this month. I hope you found the bits of the new novel I posted entertaining.
I'll post another sample tomorrow.
Until then, have a nice weekend
