So I didn't win Camp NaNo, but I came awfully close

Final Camp NaNo word count: 42,981. So not 50,000, but I came very, very close. Still proud that I have a solid WIP to work on for the next month.

Staying awake for Camp NaNo start

I didn't think I was going to be participating in Camp NaNo for the forthcoming month, but I realized that it's been a while since I've done a full on writing/editing blitz.  I have one novel that I'm writing from scratch and another I'm editing down, one of my aforementioned projects.  I haven't had much time to carve out, but I'm planning on making it count.


To everyone participating this month, I wish you all the best. *waves virtual pom-poms and hands out virtual chocolates*
