It looks like I forgot to make a blog post about the end of NaNoWriMo. Well, suffice it to say that I was pretty exhausted & burned out. But, I did it! I crossed the finish line with 50,027 on Nov 28th.
NaNoWriMo is not known for producing the best work ever. Many people write their novel and then either just end up scrapping the entire thing or dramatically rewriting it later. My intention with The Horrible Plan of Horace Pickle when I wrote it back in 2008 was just to have fun, and if it was good maybe turn it into a screen play later.
This time I decided to take a concept that was originally intended to be a webcomic. The working title for the project is Zombie Reaper, and I wasn’t sure it would make a good novel. I’ve had the concept on back burner for probably four years now, and I thought it was time to take a break from the sequel to Horace Pickle and write something new & refreshing.
Well, now I’m convinced that this project is perfect for a novel. Zombie Reaper is turning out fantastic and I can’t wait to complete it! So, I’m going to continue working on it, NaNoWriMo style, through January. You can watch my progress here and see updates on Facebook.
Something I have to say, though, is this:
Everyone who supported and encouraged me during November: THANK YOU! The little comments, the questions, and even just clicking the Like button all helped me so much. I hope you’ll continue yours support coming into January as I try to finish this project.
