NaNoWriMo Winner

Hey everyone.

I completed my National Novel Writing Month story. Lakasha's story is all finished now. It ended up being just over 52,000 words and 79 pages. It feels good to have it finished and it is the first story I ever finished with a good start, middle, and ending.

It feels good for another reason. I have pretty much quit playing EvE. I don't have room for it in my life anymore. It was a long time coming, and I fought hard to keep playing longer then I should have. I plan on keeping my account for now, and updating the training because there have been many times in the past where I just needed a break from a game. So, who knows. But the point is, finishing her story makes me feel better about walking away.

Here is the deal for those of you who have contacted me and wanted to see the end. I am going to let the story rest for a month while I work on something else. Then I will start the editing process. I will do my best to either update the blog, or email out the entire story to those who have requested a copy. Honestly, the average blog post is only three pages. I will have to cut out a lot of story to make it work in the blog. But I will do my best.

I have always wanted to write, and I know I have a long way to go. I want to thank everyone who has emailed me and contacted me in game to encourage me to write this story. It has given me the confidence to keep writing. I might never be a published author, but I will keep getting better. If nothing else, it will continue to be something I do because I enjoy it just for me. Thanks again everyone for your support.

  1. You can always host a PDF of the story on eve-files and post a link to it so that people can read the whole thing at once instead of seeing it "serialized" in a blog (unless that was your desire in the first place).

    Also, sorry you are taking a break from EVE but I really, REALLY understand the need for doing that. *hugs*
