Two posts in one night, whatever whatever. Because: update on that first draft I finished! Here’s what my novel looks like now (brought to you by the Comedian): I’m not doing a lot of hardcore editing yet, but I’ve started going through with sticky notes and a red pen marking the obvious things—the things I … More look I made a book sort of
Just wanted to take a moment to wish all my NaNo peeps good luck! I’m not participating this year, but I’ll be bouncing around a few of the Boston-area write-ins; if you’re in my part of the world maybe you’ll see me! What I will be doing instead of NaNo: finishing this draft, throwing myself … More 3 hours and counting!
