So Nanowrimo is officially over, and my word count is sufficiently unimpressive enough that I will not be sharing it. Although I didn't get nearly as far as I'd hoped I would, I'm glad I signed up. I got all of the scenes that had been knocking around my head out on "paper", which has already freed up my mind to start exploring some of the other action in the story. I also realized that while I'd pared down the story idea, which was good, I'd actually pared it down too much. So I've got a few more ideas about how I can expand on this, which I think will actually help me in the long run. So, overall, it was a good experience. It was also confirmation that I can't just sit down and write things straight out without being able to do some editing in the middle.
