So far, I’ve done a post every NANO eve about what novel I’m going to write…well, I didn’t do one this year because…I FORGOT ABOUT THE WHOLE THING!

It’s not that I’ve been sitting around doing nothing, though.  I’ve been working, crocheting, and working on proofreading my Riverwood stories.

(Plus, on the eve of Nano, I had my first time with Jury Duty to deal with, so my mind was pretty full with that..)

Though I am sad that I forgot about NANO, I feel it’s probably for the best.  I don’t think I’ll have much time this month to work on anything :(, and, frankly, I don’t have a plot ready.

I am currently working on a book (besides the Riverwood ones) but it is not one I can write in ONE MONTH.  I’ve actually been wrestling around with the idea for about a year or two now, and I still have a lot of research to do.

But, to all fellow writers participating in NANOWRIMO, good luck and KEEP WRITING!!

The Novel Ends

As soon as one saw the other, they began to cry.  It was a strange thing for both of them to do at their age, but it could not be helped.  For all of what their past holds, this moment seemed so surreal.  What Broderick dreamed of the most when he was a child was no longer a dream, but reality. “You made it, brother,” Farerick finally said, and embraced Broderick with a smile.

Well folks, tomorrow is the last day of NANOWRIMO, and I hope everything has gone well for all the participants.

Now then, I have been waiting a whole month to say this.. Ehem… I WON! Ehem…thank you for listening.

It was a long/short month, for sure.

My final word count was 61,274.  This is the longest book I have ever done in my life!! Twenty-Six chapters, 374 pages, and I think I like them all. (I hope I like them all).

Here is a quick summary for you:

When Riverwood is in danger of going into war with the goblins, the ill-stricken king calls for his finest Horseman, Broderick, to lead his men to fend off their enemy.  During this time of preparation, the king dies, bringing forth his son, Deyorn, to the throne.      
Now king Deyorn—with bitter emotions towards Broderick—and a little persuasion from one of the local lords—decides not to send the men into battle.  Broderick must now fight with himself whether he should follow his king’s orders and have the possibility of his homeland going into desolation; or disobey and  have the possibility of being discharged from his position.
 

And that is it.

Now, I know NANO is over, but that doesn’t mean you should stop writing.  Keep at it!
