NaNoWriMo Winner [Nov. 30th, 2006|10:12 am]
Nicodemus
Zokutou word meter
50,146 / 50,000
(100.3%)


I completed the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a single piece of fiction of at least 50,000 words within the month. (In fact, I was coasting these last few days and could've added another 5K if I hadn't actually reached the end of my planned story!)

It's a fun little book. I don't currently plan to do much serious editing or really develop it, but I will at least clean it up and show it to some beta readers to get opinions. After all, one of the real goals of NaNo is not always to get a good novel but to get good novel-writing practice.

Yeah, I finished mine a few days ago. No plans of doing anything with it, it's awful King Arthur in Post-Apocolyptic England stuff.
I finished it a day longer than it took me last year, but I'm still happy with it.

Well done! I don't really have any plans for this one. It's some fun spy satire, but it'd need work to adapt it to something publishable. (Needs a stronger act 2 and another 25K words, I'd say.)

Still, it's good writing practice.

Thanks. You're welcome to give it a read. I've finished up this initial draft and don't mind having people read it. (Don't yet have plans worked out for when/if I'll revise it properly.)

It's not up for publishing in its current form. It's a fun little piece, but it'd need some strengthening and a bit more twist in the plot. Plus, it's just barely 50K, which is short for a manuscript; I'd want to put another 25K on it, I think.
