NaNoWriMo Afterglow…

I did it.  I survived NaNoWriMo and won!

Life starting to get back to normal as I figure out where my story goes next.  Being through this once now I definitely appreciated all of the preparation time I put in prior to the event.  I also found myself falling into a writing process of working from an overall set of diagrammed plotlines as the source for outlining several scenes at at time – usually in groups of three: a setup scene, and action scene, and a resolution scene.  My mental model being these three scenes represent a short story structure that is integrated and moves the overall story arc forward.  This may be a completely bogus and wrong way to write, but so far it is working for me.

The bottom line – I have a half of a first draft completed and too much time invested to give up now!
