For me, Camp NaNoWriMo has come to a close. I validated my word count last night, and this morning, I wrote my final scene. I’m a winner!
So now I have this (very) rough draft, and the hard work really begins. I have found that writing a book is the easy part. Revisions and edits are much harder. I will now put aside that rough draft of mine, and I will come back to it in a week or two to begin the first round of revisions and edits. During that time, I will be doing some other writerly things.
I will also just bask in the glory of my “win” and at having accomplished something I set out to do. Yes, I did write a book, and I did it in thirty days. It will take much longer to perfect it, but it will get done.
