Here’s the deal. I hit my 50K today (with one day left!) but #spookyromancenovel is NOT finished. I’ve got a few more days probably on that, though I am so so close to the end.
There will not be a “This Week, I Read…” post tomorrow. Between holiday-related stuff and NaNo, I didn’t actually finish a book this week, for the first time, I think, since I started doing weekly review compilations! Also, maybe I shouldn’t have chosen a 600-page, first-in-a-trilogy fantasy to read this week. I’m more than half done, but yeah, still going to need a day or three for that.
Hopefully, I’ll have everything back on track next week. My plan for December (once I finish #spookyromancenovel) is to take most of the month off writing to let the draft settle. Then, over New Year’s when I’m on my family vacation, I’ll do the first reread and make myself a worldbuilding file, because I was definitely making it all up as I went, and if I do that before starting any kind of rewrite, I’ll have a much more consistent world and an easier time making it that way.
So, I’ll see everybody next Monday when I resume my regular blog schedule. Until then, I’ll be on the couch reading a lot. Gotta have something to review next week, right?
