And, Crayons Down, Writers…

It’s over. Done. Finished. Polished off. Wrapped up.

Yep, NaNoWriMo’s over for another year. As the Chinese would say, the eyes have been added to the painted dragon. That puts thirteen years of them behind us.

I wrote 302,014 words. And sill lost to the dalartha-person. Sigh. It was a good battle, though. I decided it was the gentlemanly thing to do to let the lady get the last words in. Besides, my fingers were no longer doing my bidding, my vision was blurry, and caffeine was no longer effective.

All I had to do to make 300k was to get 42,000 words in the last three days. Or nearly a whole novel in a long weekend. NOW I see how those folks do that. I made 18,000 of it on the last day, by starting at midnight and going all day. I only took one nap of 90 minutes, and a break to get the pup from the vet’s. That’s it. And filling the coffee cup multiple times; but you knew that already.

Now I need to clean out the office and reset it, get a new office chair, then get to editing this mound of mistakes…

The Event is Over; the Work, Not So Much…
