NaNoWriMo - Day 30

All right, take a deep breath and relax. It's over,  or will be at 11:59 PM. You've made it through another #NaNoWriMo. Congratulations.
Two Bottles of Wine in a Furoshiki

I'd offer a glass of wine, but all I can offer is a photo of the gift. Oh well. Now is time for congratulations and celebrations. I know when I finish a novel, I'm always up for a celebration. I've taken a long journey, and it's come to an end. There have been tears and laughter, but all in all it's been fun.

If you aren't finished, keep writing; if you are finished, take a break. You deserve one. Besides, it will take a couple days (I usually give myself a month) before you can start to edit. This way it allows me to "forget" what I wrote so I can look at it with fresh eyes. If I start editing while writing - beyond the simple clarifications and spelling errors - I tend to become sidetracked. Giving myself a month of time between, normally while writing another book, allows my brain time to disengage.

So, now that you're finished. Take the time to relax, enjoy the holiday season, and work on another story. Ideas are all around us, just open your eyes to find them.
