Well, it is the end of November, do you know where your novel is? I finished NaNoWriMo over the past weekend and made it to 50,001 words. I have to say that I enjoyed the last half of my vampire novel more than the first half. It needs mega editing and I don't know if I'll go back to it, but I may later on.
Once I finished NaNo I picked up the YA dystopian I had been working on and am up to 22K on it. I am enjoying writing about our world after a devastating war that destroys civilization as we know it. No one has electricity except the city that used to be known as New York. And they only have it on and off because they are guarded by the military. If any of you are Star Trek fans, remember the Cloud City episode where the rich lived in a perfect city with art and music and had all the food they wanted but the miners who lived below ground had to forage for food and lived a harsh life? Well, my novel is something like that only it has zombies in it!
I also finished my novella and sent it off to a potential publisher. Fingers crossed.
As we finish out 2011 I was thinking about my 2012 writing goals.
1. Sell my book(s) to one of the big six with a healthy advance (might as well dream big!)
2. Finish writing and then editing the YA dystopian.
3. Find a teaching job at a university teaching creative writing.
4. Start a MFA program.
5. Continue to write and be able to make a living from it (again, dream big!)
What are your writing goals for 2012?
I hope those that participated were able to finish their NaNo novels and can add a winner's badge to their website/blog/whatever. I added one to my website.
Take Care, Until Next Time,
