NaNoWriMo is ended (it actually ended for me somewhere around the 18th) and now it’s time to take stock.
I’ve written 50k this month on varying projects. 33k of it was on The Shadow Raven, as intended, but then I fell off of that and I’ve been working on short stories and blog posts instead.
November’s reading has been quite unimpressive. I’ve read a little of Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, a little of Echoes by Miranda Marie (that one I was saving for after I won NaNo, so I only read a couple of chapters when I met my word count goal), and a little of Thread and Spindle by Holly Hook. I’ve enjoyed all of them, and now I get to finish reading Echoes. ^-^
Other Exciting Stuff
I’m on vacation at the beach for the first time since I was probably three. It’s not anywhere super warm, unfortunately, but still. It’ll be cool to see what a beach is like in person so I can write it better. And you know you’re a writer when you see your two-week vacation as story research. ;)
