NaNoWriMo Final Week: Sparkly Fairies

The sparkly idea fairy of nowhere-land blessed me with a huge surge of inspiration and words a few days ago – and I brought my total up to 94 words under 50k. Funny enough, I didn’t finish those 94 words until until three days later – today. This is probably because, I don’t know, the holidays. Family and stuff.

I ended here:

NaNoWriMo 2015-11-30



Which I am pretty dang proud of. More importantly, however, I now know the details of the ending of this book. It was a bit hazy up until now. I feel like I can finish this sucker up in a week or two, and then let it stew for the rest of the year before turning to edits when the new year arises.

In truth, I’ll probably end up editing before that. NaNoWriMo left me with some larger editing issues I need to work out, and fixing them now will give me peace of mind. I found some timeline issues, and there are a few details I need to add to make it look like I didn’t just completely drop the ball on a few plot points.

Which, of course, would never happen! *whistle *


About R. K. Brainerd

I've been writing since my pre-teens, mostly in the realm of fantasy and sci-fi. My characters are pretty much always clamoring for attention, and if I don't listen, they plague me with insane dreams and nightmares until I start writing. I also raise dairy goats, the evidence of which can be found on my Instagram. My debut novel -- an alternate-history fantasy -- it set to come out in 2018, probably Fall time. Welcome to the adventure. View all posts by R. K. Brainerd
