Confession--I did not finish NaNoWriMo this year

I was doing really well. I was at least a thousand words ahead though most of the start, three thousand by Day 11...and then, I forgot to do it. For ten days. And by THEN, it was too much to make up. I don't know what happened other than November is always a mess and this year is more so, but I didn't finish.

I have a little over 30 pages, when I put it all together in proper MS format. I never did type up that one day that's longhand, so maybe more like 40.

But the Plan still stands! I'm going to edit Beacon through January and get it up on Amazon (and maybe Lulu so there can be physical copies, too), and then I'm going to write the rest of The Sound of Birds, Singing, and get that up on Amazon before the April NaNo spinoff. Where I'll try to write another book in 30 days (probably the first Drae novel, or the second Beacon, or maybe finish flipping Ember--haven't decided yet). 

I guess I'll have to account for wobbles. But we're moving now, and I'm rearranging how my space is put together so I can have dedicated space and so it's easier to remember what I'm supposed to be doing each day. I'm getting back on the scheduling wagon, that I fell off of a while ago. I'm building a better life through stubbornness and optimism.

So fear not. December is for Division of Muse Relations Vol2*, and then January gets back to books.

How did you do?

*Get Vol1 from my Shop tab up above, or from www.gumroad.com/pirategirljack -- where you'll also find the first round of monthly journal prompt questions in a font I made from my own actual handwriting, and some Family Memory Book basic printables!
