This has been a great experience and something I'd be willing to repeat at least once a year. The response I've received from my Facebook updates and my "Suggest My Next Title" page has been great! Also, I've met quite a lot of people I would never have without NaNoWriMo. Some of them are local authors and some of them are online friends. Each and every one of you has been very supportive.
However, I do see some downfalls to writing almost non-stop for a month. Nothing else gets done! My blog has suffered, my promoting has suffered (as well as my sales) and my household has suffered. Okay... my household suffers on a daily basis anyway. The house is never clean and the poor family have to live with ME.
As of the writing of this (Sunday November 14th) I have reached 32688 words and have 17312 left to make my 50,000 NaNoWriMo goal. My story has come together very nicely - compared to my previous books with the exception of Color Me Grey. This one has been a complete joy to write and I know it's because of the feedback I've been receiving. There's nothing that compares to writing with an audience.
I am still asking for title suggestions. Though I absolutely love every one I've received I have not yet gotten one that really sticks out at me. However some of them come VERY close.
I may be in the market for beta readers sometime in the near future and if you'd like to be one of the first to read my book (if) when I complete it, let me know.
Here's some extra news I just found!
I have a new review up on Amazon.
Enjoyed the Series November 12, 2010
I'm not into long reviews, but I figure authors like to know if someone enjoyed their books - so here it is. I found this author through the Kindle facebook page, read the first book in the series, and immediately purchased the other two books.
Thanks for reading!
