So Far So Good for NaNoWriMo!

At the end of day 3 I’m up to 8099 in words written, not too shabby I think.  It’s definitely a different vibe writing fanfic for NaNo rather than an original novel.  I don’t have the freedom of writing complete unpolished crap because it’s a first draft and won’t be seen in this incarnation since I’m posting updates as I go and I’ve got to make sure they’re up to snuff before they get posted.  And I also don’t have the benefit of having the fairly detailed outline I had for the other 3 novels I’ve written during the month long writing challenges since I just didn’t have time to get anything down this time.

But on the plus side, it’s gratifying to have people see the results right away.  And I’m normally a pretty ‘fly by the seat of my pants’ kind of writer when it comes to fanfic, so that’s okay. And there’s less pressure to come up with something super awesome that I have to then figure out a way to market because my fanfic is just for fun and for the fans.  With things so stressful at work, I’m glad I went this route even if I won’t end up with a book to publish at the end of the month.

I wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone for all the support and feedback on fanfic.net! I had over 55,000 hits for my fics last month alone, that is amazing! You guys are the reason I write there, and I’m so touched to have so many people reading.

In other news, I heard back from a publisher today who’s about halfway through reading Pretty Witches All in a Row.  He emailed me to let me know that he’s really enjoying it so far and with a little editing he thinks I’ve got the makings of a great book.  How cool is that?

Feedback is love!
