Teen Inklings Vol. 17: Alas, NaNoWriMo

Some of you writers may still be recovering from NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), so I'll keep this brief. To those of you who passed the 50,000 word count, congratulations! To those of you who didn't, better luck next year!

Now, those of you who wracked up a heavy word count, know this... your work isn't over yet. Sad, I know! But now that you have a large quantity of words, you now have to work on bumping up the quality of those words. So, take a break, pat yourself on the back, and put that crafting cap on your head and get back to work! ;-)

Also, a bit of personal news... it looks like I'll be getting a contract for my novella, The Scarlet Key, very soon! I'll try and post more about that as the months go on. It's exciting to think that sometime in 2011 people will actually be able to hold a book in their hands and read a story I thought up between school periods.

It's also very weird.

I'll keep you all posted on what I learn throughout the experience. See you around the net!
