NaNo Day.... Ooops! I'm DONE!

Dreams are at once fruit & outcry against an atrophy of the senses. - Jim Morrison

Last year when I finished NaNo, I felt a little lost... I'd had this huge goal, this driving force that was suddenly gone.

Not so this year. I imagine that it's partly because I didn't love my story as much this year, didn't connect with my characters the way I did with Liv and her gang. It's also because I have a lot of other things to do that I've set aside while I finished NaNo.

Now I can get started.

I have many edits to make on my WW story, I need to decide which novel I want to polish and send out next year (Playing House, Liv or Camilla -- what the heck, why not all three? LOL...), and I have goals to set. I also have a couple other short stories I've started and not finished that I like and need to work through - one of which started as a short Christmas story and has since become more of a novella.

Lost? Nah... I'm found.

And, for my last ever NaNo post (until next year!), I want to send out a hearty congrats to my NaNo buddies who made it to the bitter end: Syl, Kathy, Ceri, Mary, and June. Well done everyone!!

I'm off to work on my WW story... it needs to go out this week or it'll be too late.

Don't forget: You only have two more days to enter to win The Courage to Write! Enter now by clicking here.

I'll leave you with a photo of the tree that we stalked, hunted, killed and mounted - does it help get you in the Christmas spirit?


And the perfect Christmas gift? That would be my latest short story release:

Beautiful tree! We dont have ours yet. In another week or two maybe. I don't like getting it too soon. I generally dont' find the Christmas spirit until around the middle of December.

I've been going over some of my wips, trying to pick the one I most want to work on. Tough choice!
