I did it. I completed the National Novel Writing Month 2011 challenge. I wrote 50,015 words in 30 days. The rough draft is just a beginning. Now comes the hard part of editing, sifting out which themes I want to run with, structuring continuity, building character depth, and adding a much needed final climactic scene. I plan to publish this thing eventually and realize one of my life goals. Congratulate yourselves for being here at the beginning. I couldn’t have done it without your support.
