I Won NaNoWriMo!!


Two months ago, I asked you for ideas to write a NaNoWriMo novel. And you delivered! Here are some of the ideas you gave me. I’d like to thank  Barb Knowles, 10000hoursleft, Deborah O’Carrol, Vinnieh, ZhyxthenovelHbhatnagar, Mreadsbooks, Ehbates, Bookishgirl129, and Nandini Bharadwaj for their help! 🙂

But this is just the beginning! What’s next, then!?

Well, the first draft’s done, and at 55,070 words, it’s nothing to sneeze at! Now I’d like to give myself some time off from the novel to get some perspective. After that comes the super-fun, much-beloved process of editing! There is sooo much that needs to be polished :’) I don’t know how long this step will take, but I’ll do my best to be quick about it!

Then, after that, I will make the novel look beautiful by using InDesign. Once everything is done, I will upload it to Amazon as a free e-book for everyone to download!

In the meantime, though, I will keep you updated with news and pieces of trivia about the wonderful world of SirenSong!  Among other things, I will show you the wonderful cover drawn by Hellyon White, I will introduce you to the main characters of the novel, and I will tell you about the mythology of this little underwater world! Keep coming regularly to find out more about it! 🙂

    Congrats on finishing! I still have 700 words left on my word count! I think the editing part is the hardest! You spent a month trying to get all the words down and now all you want to do is curl up into a ball until the new year! Or at least I do. Good luck on the next step!

  2. Well done! I tried my best for 50k precisely but the word count discrepancy between NaNoWriMo’s verification and that in word meant I finished with an extra 12 words. So excited that you took my suggestion…looking forward to reading the book!
