So, I've been working with Prince-Fenick
for nanowrimo, and we've been kicking some massive ass. We're already at 33k, and that was just day 11. That means 17k in 19 days left. If we don't get it done this year, I'd be surprised. We should win this year! That's really cool for me because this hasn't been more than a hobby for the past 3 years, and now it's become so much more. This is what I want to do, and to write what amounts to 1/3rd of a novel in 11 days... that's unprecedented for me. My fastest so far was 90k in 5 months, which just edged out my previous record at 95k in 6 months (also with Fen).
It proves that it's a viable skill, now we just need to put the work out into the world. That will be the test of how good the novels are. I could actually be living my dream.
Of course, school has been getting in the way, but that won't be forever. The semester ends in 34 days. Then there's just a year left. Today I start full time work, but it should affect my productivity too much. Time will be the only way to tell if it does. I have an amazing writing partner, and I think it could be our future.
