I know that I have written on here once today already, but as you know my trend is to post whenever I have something to say. The reason I am posting this right now is because I am extremely excited right now. I just reached 10,444 words into Shadow Voices!! I told myself that I wanted at least 10,000 words to finish the story or if it needed to continue then it will. Well it seems like Shadow Voices does not want to finish!!
Of course looking at is in the Nanowrimo way I am way under the verbiage count of 50,000 words needed. Its okay though, I am not going to stress over it. I know that this is my first year in participating in nanowrimo so as long as I keep trying I think that I will do ok. Who knows maybe this will become a novel or just stay what I think it originally will become; a short story.
So All I wanted to express is that I am doing my happy dance!! I met my first goal reaching my word count. Now its time to write and hope that the story ends or finding an ending for Shadow Voices by the end of the month. I have other story ideas that I want to start on but I don’t want to start them until I am finished with this one.
By the end of November I plan of starting my second edit (myself) which I will give myself a month, from then I will send it to my friend and have him do a final edit. Hopefully he only takes a month, after that I have to decide on a book cover and well making a decision if I will be selling it through amazon books or other independent sources or going to a publisher house if they take my book.
Once my friend has my book though I will start on my second book… depending on how this one ends I… well let me NOT get ahead of myself. One step at a time. first celebrate!!
10,444 words and counting!!! (Happy dance, Happy dance, Happy dance!!)
