Nearing the Finish Line!

>> Thursday, October 16, 2008

I am almost done with my short story, thank heavens! It seems like I've been writing it for eons. I managed to edit it down to 82 words over word count, but I had to change the lackluster ending. It didn't feel right. I wanted something that was quintessentially Wintra. It took me a while to come up with something, but I did.

So now I'm only 144 words over my count for the contest. I can whittle that down easily! Yay! I was honestly beginning to think I could never do it.

Meanwhile, I'm feeling nervous about Nanowrimo. Why? I haven't picked a story idea yet. At first, the problem was that I couldn't come up with one. Now, I have a LOT of ideas...and I can't seem to pick one. *sigh* Will the madness never end?

I'm glad that you're almost done! So what ending did you decide to go with?? I'm curious now.

As for NaNo, don't worry. I had the same problem. If you want to run the ideas by me, I could help you narrow them down :)

Happy birthday! For NaNo, I'm thinking of writing two stories. I did it a couple of years ago, but never reached 50K on both of them. I don't know if I'm crazy enough to try again this year.
