So the novel, as it stands right now, has its very crappy places, its moderately crappy places, and its gems of brilliance. But you know what? I think it's salvageable. And by salvageable, I mean with a lot of work, I think I can actually do something with it. I can already think of a lot of scenes to add to it and to rewrite; I have a text document with notes of those in it. I can think of tons of description to add, tons of little hints of things to come to add. I know you're thinking, "So why don't you add those already?" The truth is that I've just finished pounding out a draft, and now I need to recover. The important part is that the draft is done. I can do everything else later. Right now, "everything else" is real life.

Yay! Thanks. NaNo looks a lot more calm from this side.

Yay, that's awesome! Congrats! :)

I have my winning NaNo from last year, and I've worked on it on and off. It can be done. But hopefully you'll be more productive than I am. ;)

I have my last four winning NaNo novels, and I haven't edited any of them. The last two can be salvageable with total rewrites, but I'm definitely rewriting this one.

Whoo! You suck, you beat me! :( and not in the happy fun way!I'm going to this weekend, I swear it! Sunday I have off work, and will be hopefully avoiding the driving most of the time, so can get some good writing time in. and once I get back, I'm going to do nothing but write all day.

But you're so close too! And besides, you were ahead of me for awhile too. I had to do something about it. :P

Word Count: 50170 words...yay! Time to celebrate. I'm so happy for you!

It is indeed celebration time. Of course, last night celebration time meant sleep, and today it meant hanging around the forums all afternoon. But hey, at least I'm trying to get back in the non-noveling world. :)

Keep writing! You'll get there!
