NaNoWriMo 2017 – WINNER

winner-congrats

 

That’s right folks. I did it. I completed my first NaNoWriMo. Official final NaNo word count is 53,200. I have already dove into editing and am really loving it. I’ve heard from others that editing is terrible and difficult but so far I far prefer it to drafting. The tweaking, adding little bits, correcting things that went a little off in drafting…for me it is fun!

Did you participate in NaNoWriMo this year? How did you do? Talk to me!

Self imposed hiatus over

Hello all!

As some of you may have noticed, I have been absent here at Literary Weaponry for the last week. That was because of a self imposed hiatus. I’m not going to get into the whys outside of saying that I needed some time away.

I am back now, but I think I will be changing my posting schedule and perhaps a few other things. We’ll see how it goes.

For now, I will just say that I am nearly done with Renegades by Marissa Meyer so hopefully that review will be up by the end of the week. I still expect to be taking part in Top Ten Tuesday and WWW Wednesdays when relevant.

Hope to speak with you all soon!
