I wound up deciding not to try and finish Nano this time. Partly because I knew I was not going to finish the story itself, and partly because I had things that really needed to be done that weren't writing related.

It would have been lovely to finish the draft, but I can still take some things away from this:

* I definitely have the beginning of the book. The events I have down are perfect for the beginning of a story.
* I realised that it would have been good, as I did a few years ago when I won Nano, to have done a bit more finer plotting before launching into writing it in such a short space of time. It something to learn at least.
* Writing did give me more ideas for the world I've set up, and also shown me that I need to do more work on it as well.
* Has made me certain that I do want to tell this story.

So, I have my 28,000 words, and am happy with that. What I will be doing here though is keeping on posting about the work on the novel. Perhaps not in the next week, but sometime soon. I look forward to getting back into it, but for now, I'll be happy with what I've got.
