So, there you have it. 50,000 words in 29 days. I’m exhausted but very, very enlightened by the fact that I tried and did not fail. I’m nowhere near completing the novel’s story, but these past few weeks have taught me that I can persevere in a manner that I had not quite thought I was capable of previously. My new goal is to try and have the story complete by the end of 2011, so that I can start the second draft rewrite in 2012 and then move onto editing. Then, who knows, maybe it will be time for a new novel idea for November 2012…bring it on!
