So, I won. I have 50,000 words of novel. I really did it… really really. Never thought I could, but now, look at this! It’s hard to believe the month is basically over – this is the last day, I just finished, tomorrow it will be December, and time to edit.
Aaaaaaaa!! 😦 Editing!!
But for now I shall just feel happy that it’s done and over with… and fear that now my family will want to read it xD
It is such a satisfying feeling writing “THE END” in big capital letters. I liked the feeling so much that I did it four times. And another three times, without the capitals. THE END. The end, the end. Really it’s the end! It’s the end of the novel! It’s the end of NaNo! This is it! It’s THE END! And also, the BEGINNING, the beginning of something new, the editing, the polishing and refining process to get it just right for publishing. Finishing the novel, really finishing it properly.
Also, my novel may not be “finished” in the sense of it’s storyline – it either needs to be longer, or it needs a sequel. Or I could just forget about that, and simply scroll through my document and tell myself that all of these handfuls of words whizzing by are enough. Pages and pages brimming with words. “It’s only words, and words are all I have…” 😀
Hasta pronto, yours elatedly,
ps I have not decided on a title for my novel yet. “Rehya’s Journey” and “Seekers of Gold”/”Seeking Gold” are the ideas I have so far… what do you reckon??
