Just a random observation


Here's how I feel about my six NaNovels:

Year 1: Liked. Was being critiqued by a writers' group that I am no longer a part of.

Year 2: Hated. It will never see the light of day. I have not even opened the file since November 30, 2004.

Year 3: Liked. It was published on my fanfic website.

Year 4. Hated. I have not opened the file since November 29, 2006. I still like the story concept, and I am going to completely rewrite it. Some day.

Year 5: Liked. Published it on my fanfic site.

Year 6. I don't dislike it, but it will never see the light of day. It's not something I feel is worth working on to even try to get it publishable. It was a lot of fun to write, though!

So, in odd years, I come up with stuff I like. In even years, I write things that will never go anywhere. Hmmm...


Interesting odd/even year analysis.

Hey, next year is an odd one! :)

Just keep on writing, because you are awesome! I'm so glad this year's novel was fun to write :-)
