I’m not sure how we ended up at the tail end of November, but here we are.
How was your Nanowrimo? Did you participate?
As I mentioned, I’m working on an editing project this time around rather than drafting a new book. I hit 50,000 edited words last weekend, but still have about 50% of the book to go so I’m still working, trying to get in the last few chapters before we go into December. If I get this done, then it will be the first writing deadline I’ve hit all year. Which is kind of sad, but it would be a nice achievement to have.
I am really enjoying editing this book, though. The main character, Kit, is a lot of fun for me to write, especially her interactions with her family. One change I’m making on this pass is the setting. Originally it was set in upstate New York, but that never really fit with the story. Following my move to Seattle, I’ve changed the location to southern Washington, and it’s working out much better.
If you are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, then I hope you enjoy it. And if not–good luck meeting those deadlines!
