…but I’m not finished. I spent the last few days of November feeling like I was on a hamster wheel. I wasn’t sure where or how to weave the ending together. Then NaNo ended and I realized I was free to start editing.
I went to page one and started reading. I thought if I went back to the beginning and remembered what I wanted out of this story, I would know where to finish.
It worked. I don’t have all the answers but I feel better about it and I’m back in tune with my characters. It’s a relief to not have that daily word count looming over my head. I took a couple of days off then started reading, not red pen reading, just reading.
Thanks to all my NaNoWriMo buddies for taking the journey with me. I couldn’t have finished without you. I enjoyed the month but I’m also glad it’s over. Now I can work at a more comfortable pace and make this story something to be proud of.
