NANOWRIMO Diary – Post Challenge Update For 2020

Hello fellow writers. So that was NaNoWriMo for 2020 – now completed and the pressure is off. I did not complete my hard target of 50k and managed to get to 47K before I decided to stop. I have just had eye surgery so many people would be like “whaaaat?” but I am not using that as an excuse. I am now sitting in front of my computer typing this to you without wearing my glasses for the first time in years. So everything seems kind of strange and new to me right now (it’s very hard to explain). NaNoWriMo seems like the smallest of challenges I have taken on this year but one of the most important in terms of my development as a writer. I have never experienced so much in such a short space of time and I have never really been able to connect with my characters like this before. It has been one of the most exhilarating experiences I’ve had as a writer. And I am so thankful I did it. And will definitely be doing it again next year!

As for my story, well, the next few days will probably be crucial in Ethan’s development. I will say that Milly does appear in this story (that’s a nice little teaser for those of you who have read and enjoyed Milly’s story) and what I have in store for both Ethan and for you, my readers, I hope will draw you even further into the world I have created for them.

I’ll be spending the next couple of days doing a very rough edit of what I’ve written and finally deciding on the ending I want for Ethan’s story (as I have several currently). I hope you will continue to enjoy my work and maybe even share some of your own projects after NaNoWriMo? I would love to read your stories!

If you’re new to my blog – thank you for coming and welcome! I will assume you’re here for the writing so my current story is the second part to Tales of the West Book I Part I which you can read right here. The first part is Milly’s story which you can read here.

And as always thank you for your readership, your likes and your support, it means the world to me.
