So operation NaNoWriMo is complete. 50,000 words in 30 days. I did it. I am now standing on the sidelines handing out Lucozade and cheering on my sister who is also whizzing along to the finish. She got snagged up a bit (jobs and real life tend to get in the way, annoyingly) so she has a fair amount to catch up on but right now she is 42,500 or thereabouts. Oy ve.
I feel extremely pleased with myself but realise that I now have a lot of shite to wade through, some gaping holes to patch up and about 6 years of intensive editing and rewriting and then maybe, juuust maybe I'll have something worth showing close family!
