It’s been quite a month!
I learned, without a doubt, that I need a lot more practice at outlining Short Stories. My sense of scale is, shall we say, lacking.
Cal – Inspector Caracal – has been a lot of help in this. Even if some of it is “Lyn? This is a novel.”
My goal was 20-22 stories, counting submission and Patreon.
I submitted one story (and made 3 false starts on another)
I wrote 5 short-short stories and three chapters of Expectant Wood, my serial, for Patreon
I wrote 8 “finish it” stories and started two others
I wrote over 65000 words just on the nano project.
So, not success, but productive & educational.
I also wrote 6 stories independent of the #nanowrimo project, started one longer storyline, and created a new universe.
My total wordcount for the month was 77,484.
I feel accomplished! And not burnt out! (Which was also a goal!)
Onward to December, to putting all 8 of those short stories into an anthology, and to planning for the January-April novel.
