After a huge months-long overrun the 2011 NaNo finally came to an end for me last month with a complete first draft of 143,713 words. The time has come to take the first draft off the web page and stick it in a metaphorical drawer to await some editing. I already miss the boys, but I'm confident I will see them again in another marathon slog sometime.
A massive thank you to everyone who came along for the ride - if you missed it and want to check it out, PM me at my usual haunt and ask for .doc, .rtf or mobi.
Right now I'm taking a serious swing at editing the 2010 NaNo, STEAM and its every bit as hard as I thought it would be. The next NaNo seems impossibly close, but I'm going to try not to think about that until it's a lot closer. Lots to do, not much time to do it in, unless I become a lady of leisure.
Kick back, have a beer, think about future journeys into the unknown.
