I made it to 50k and beyond. Even more importantly, I finished the story, and I'm finally feeling that the ending is right. I'll probably tweak the last few lines, maybe add in more dialogue, but the tone of it, the conclusion of it, at long last works for me. And if it works for me, then hopefully it'll work for readers too (although I'm not sure when I'll post it into the searching spotlight of the public, always a nerve-wracking, tricky thing to do).
I wrote the entire novel in Scrivener. It went off in a different direction in the last several chapters from the original radio play I wrote in 2011 during ScriptFrenzy. And for once, I managed to keep updating my outline in the Index Card app as I went (oh, um, I forgot -- gotta update the last two chapters and delete a couple...anywhoo). And I found the Scrivener NaNoWriMo obfuscation compile template so that I could quickly and easily validate my manuscript on the NaNoWriMo website.
I'm now done. I'm finding that hard to believe. Wow. Done. Gotta let that sink in.
I'm feeling rather at loose ends, like, what now? Well, celebrate with some chocolate, of course. And then peruse the winner's page to see what the goodies are. And oh yeah, update my BiblioCrunch annual membership. That is one winner's goody from last year that more than paid itself out to me. Best one ever!
