We survived our first major snowfall with the only major casualty in our household being our garage door opener, so now I thought I’d give another brief update. Yes, I’m still preparing another post, which will give you more of a glimpse into some new opportunities I am considering, but it is not ready yet.
This November I competed in my second Nanowrimo. If you aren’t familiar with it, Nanowrimo requires participants to write 50K words in November. I participated a couple years ago and managed it, but I wasn’t able to make my schedule work in subsequent years. This year, even though I still wasn’t finished another novel, I decided to force myself to participate.
(Yes, I ended up writing two novels at the same time — counting words on the second one for Nanowrimo.)
Needless to say this made November hectic. But I managed to get my 50K words complete and also almost 20K on the other novel. I came near to writing a full seventy-thousand words last month. I’m happy with my effort — this is more words than the first half of 2014 added together.
The drawback to this is that neither novel is totally complete. It will probably take me to the holiday break to finish things up.
Tonight or tomorrow my newest Newsletter goes out with a glimpse at some major design changes to my Hauler prototype. Sign up if you want to have the first look at it.
