The End of NaNoWriMo and 2017

Wow! November was a crazy month. Let's see...

I won National Novel Writing Month! It was my first time doing it officially and I managed to stay ahead until the last week, where it was suddenly looking very bleak. After a full day of writing in three different locations, the last of which was my writer friend's house for a writing sprint, I surpassed the 50,000 word goal and we all celebrated with beer, whiskey, and champagne. I felt it this morning.

Finishing that many words also means I am almost done with the second draft of my manuscript! A manuscript that finally has a working title! ... Which I will not be sharing just yet.

I took some time to work on a little bit of art this month, too. I have three semi-passable renditions of what some of the monsters in my series look like (and a whole bunch of other not passable ones), along with a couple maps.

I had two Thanksgivings, both of which I cooked for. Turkey for one, leg of lamb for the other, both turned out great.

So, with a successful November in my rear view mirror, now I've got December to look forward to. I'm going to carry my momentum into the last month of 2017 and end the year on a strong note.

How did you all do with NaNoWriMo? What's the end of 2017 looking like for you?
