NaNo '09

So for the 3rd year, I participated in November's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The goal is to write 50k words in the month of November. I was successful with my Young Adult Sci-Fi attempt in hitting just over 57k words. I found it to be a real struggle at times, but I'm falling more in love with the story and the characters as I'm trying to finish it.

I hadn't been planning on participating since I was still working on a NaNo Fantasy novel from two years ago, but I was struck with an idea while in the shower one day (where I get some of my best ideas for some reason...) and figured I'd give it a try. I'm definitely glad I gave it a go. Now I just need to keep up the momentum and get the story completed!

Please, kind readers, feel free to leave comments kicking my ass and yelling at me to get writing.
