So last night I did it, I hit the 50K word mark on my NaNoWriMo novel, The Star Children and of course was bombarded with stuff from the website about it in an overly delightful video. The fun thing is though, I'm only up to chapter 7, haha. Just because I hit my word count doesn't mean the story is over, and it certainly doesn't mean I'm going to turn my back on it. thing is with NaNo is they're geared towards 'write everything now and edit later' So I have a few unposted chapters that I wrote, but haven't had time to edit yet, because I was too concerned with just writing it all down. So that means I need to go and nit pick for a little while before I get back to regularly posting again. But I definitely want to see this through to the end, I know that means pushing Sands of Neverland back and putting the entire Crown series to a screeching halt, but I've been on a roll for a whole month now and I don't want to throw off my groove with this. And it's nice to take a break and work on something a little different. I've been been in Neverland since 2010, I need a vacation, haha.
For those of you following Star Children, I greatly appreciated it, I really do. Because of the short planning time this story had, I had to pull a lot from personal experiences which, in turn, brought this story closer to me. It does hold a special place in the spiraling black pit where my heart should be. If you haven't checked out The Star Children yet, please do. You may be surprised with what you find. It's not just a story science experiments and giants, it's about existence as a whole what it truly means to be human.
I hit a nice milestone last night that I'm very happy about and of course I had to go and celebrate with a few beers with friends. Guinness of course, just for you, Rowan O'Malley.
