Tonight, I crossed the finish line of October Madness. I didn't miss a single day, even through being sick and having a root canal. (And that's saying something--dental work messes me up like there's no tomorrow.)
I now have thirty-one fresh, shiny story starts ready to be explored and expanded in November. I've decided that I am doing NaNoWriMo, although it's more of a NaShoStoWriMo, for me, as I'll be writing my 50,000 words on short stories instead of a novel. I'm energized and excited to dive in when tomorrow rolls around.
My word count for October came in at 19,585, less than half of what I intend to put out in November. That's okay. I can do it. I have faith in myself and belief in my work.
What a word rush!
