First draft of novel completed in a month with NaNoWriMo

30 November and lunchtime today I wrote the final scene of the first draft of my second novel – tentatively titled “Nightspore’s Angel” – almost 55K words in one month.

Never though I could sustain 1k words a day, let alone average almost 2K and have occasional peaks of 3K and 4K. The spur, of course, was participating in NaNoWriMo.

My thanks to my NaNo buddies Jan Whitaker, Phillip McCollum and Caroline Norrington for encouragement and showing me I was regularly well behind their word count!

Caroline’s Scrivener template and the Snowflake Method it introduced me to were also invaluable.
