It's December 1st and NaNoWriMo 2020 is in the books. It was a rough month, with my numbers going up and down with every day. Some days were fantastic, others were a little less than perfect, but I was able to write words every single day! No days with 0 words written!
So, did I win?
I won my first NANOWRIMO!!
You have no idea how excited I am over this win. Not only did I finish the month off strong with over 50,000 words written, but I was also able to completely finish "To Love A Tea Witch!' The first draft of the novel is done and in the books! I actually went ahead and uploaded it to Amazon to get that sweet, sweet author proof so I can start edits as soon as it comes in! But for now, the story is in the bed and I'm taking some time to relax...
Just kidding! No relaxing here! I actually got the idea for the second story in the series that I am calling "The Thistlewood Witches," and it focuses on Alexis, the slightly manic goth girl who is part of Sydney's coven who has a *slight* obsession with demons and other planes of existence. I actually spent the last day of NaNo working on that follow up novel, plotting it and getting ready to dive into it. I am just as excited for Alexis's love story as I am for Sydney's love story, and I am thinking about giving it a twist at the end! We will see where I go with it!
For now, I'm noodling around with this new story while waiting on my author proof to arrive from Amazon. Sydney's story is going to get some in-depth edits before it hits the market, but I am hopeful that I can get it on Amazon and in your kindle by the end of December or the first bit of January! Fingers crossed!
And that's the end of my NaNoWriMo journey! I am planning on writing along with Camp NaNo in April, so I'll have more updates then. And hopefully life will slow down and I can complete it with a little more consistency!
Happy writing, friends! Next time I see you, I'll have my author copy in my hands!
Just me, a paranormal romance author with big dreams and even bigger crushes!
