Yesterday I mustered up the energy to compile what I previously wrote for my novel with my words from NaNo and I was pleasantly surprised that I'm currently over 86,000 words! Then I realized that I still have the third act to finish plus my extra POV's that I've barely even touched because I wanted to devote all my energy to my FMC's story since her story is the driving force behind everything else. I'm thinking when it's all over and I've trimmed out unnecessary scenes or relocated them to future books I'll end up around 100,000 words which would make this the longest book I've ever written.

Yes, it's real. I get this feeling after dumping everything I have into one project for 30 solid days straight makes my brain feel like mush and the rest of me not want to do anything for a couple days. Besides, it helps me get some distance from what I wrote so I can better edit in the coming months. That all being said, I haven't been completely neglecting my novel. On the long drives to and from work I've come up with some exciting new subplots and ideas for the next book. Surprisingly enough I'm planning on writing a trilogy which should be interesting. I think I have enough going on for it to take at least another book, but most likely two so I can properly wrap up the story.

And that's about all my brain can handle right now. Back to fuzzy blankets and TV shows for the rest of the evening. :)

Yea that basically sums it up. I'm currently just below 20,000 words and it's the end of week two so I have a little bit of catching up to do.

I write original fantasy, but I've never posted it online so this will be a new experience for me. The novel I'm working on for NaNo is about a woman who escapes from slavery by stealing a dragon that I wrote the bulk of last year.

That's about it. I should actually go and do some writing now while I have some energy left.
