Although I didn't sign up for NaNoWriMo this year, I did set myself a personal challenge to finish revising the second draft of Scattered Seasons in November. Last night, around 11:15, I did it. My word count for the month was nowhere near 50,000 words, and I really struggled with this ending, since I changed the plot of this book extensively to match with Seasons' Beginnings. The ending was completely new, and I had trouble blocking out how it should go. But the draft is done and comes in under 75,000 words. Time to take a break from it until next year and switch back to the Catalyst Chronicles universe for a while. I know where Julia's story has to go; I just need to figure out the path to get her there.
Anyway, congratulations to everyone who participated in NaNoWriMo. Even if you didn't finish your book or the word count, just showing up and writing can be a victory. Keep the momentum going!
