Well November is over and December is here! I really can't believe how fast this year has went. As many of you know, last month was National Write a Novel Month. A month where people write like crazy and try to get a 50K novel written. Now as I have talked about here on this blog before, I have been struggling with words this year. Like really struggling. So it should come as no surprise when I tell you that I did not hit 50K. Not even close. However that does not mean that I am seeing November as a failure. No! Far from it! I got a lot of writing done for me. I more than doubled my word count from October in November. I got all three rounds of edits for my Christmas novella Very Friendly Beasts done. I managed to get Very Friendly Beasts up for preorder. I managed to keep this blog active with three blogs a week. I worked some on this website and marketed my work. I also wrote and submitted three short stories for some upcoming anthologies, so look for some announcements coming soon on those! And I also got a good start on a novel that I have been wanting to write for a long time. So did I hit the NaNo goal? No. Did I make personal strides to getting back in the writing groove? You bet I did and I am counting that as a huge win!
So this is a new month, what are my writing goals now that NaNo is done? I want to write two more short stories for anthologies. I just love short fiction and love being part of anthologies, enough so that I made a separate book page to share all the anthologies that I have been lucky enough to be a part of here on this website. I also want to continue work on my romantic fantasy Quest for Self and my NaNo novel Rivals Out of Time.
