Well, NaNoWriMo ended last night, and I didn't win. The "power of the deadline" met "the power of the vacation", and lost.
But I did manage to get over 30,000 words before the contest ended. That's still an accomplishment to me.
I was SO sure I was going to win. But when you get blocked for ideas it's hard to keep going, and then being in another state with family and friends and relaxing... oh well. Just going to have to try again next year.
In the meantime, I'm going to try and keep writing Bane of Death
. If you have any comments, critiques, or whatnot on the stuff I've written thus far, please start sending them to me! At some point this month I should be starting to go through the current prose and fixing it up.
Lastly, chapters 5, 6, and 8 are up on the website
now. Chapters 7 and 9 are also up, but are not necessarily complete.
