Good News / Bad News

Well, the good news is, I've come to the end of my NaNovel. It's not my most shining hour in terms of writing, but it is a complete narrative with beginning, middle and end.

The bad news is, I'm about ten thousand words shy of the fifty thousand I need. My tendency towards brevity has thwarted me once more.

So I'll be spending the next few days filling in the gaps (there are many) and describing things in a little more detail. Sunday will be devoted to hard core count-upping, which Monday and Tuesday to mop up, I hope.

Today I took pleasure in writing the last three words of my NaNovel. ("I can't wait.")

Today I learned I am capable of writing a complete narrative work of some 40,000 words. Maybe not a very good work, but a work nonetheless.

Hey, big CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm sure you'll get your word count up, and even though it's not part of the rules, a little editing can turn a not so great work into a great one. I'm happy for you!! And do we get to read it?
