It’s the final countdown…

Here we are in the final hours before the April session of Camp NaNoWriMo starts, and I am so excited!! For the past couple of days, I’ve been so giddy about finally getting to finish my novel! And I have a bit of a confession to make…I once again “broke the rules” and wrote a little early. My prologue I had already written a couple of years ago, but this is the first chapter. See, I had this breakthrough moment the other night, and after some serious debating, I finally decided to just go on ahead and write the short scene I had come up with.
Overall, I am now a little over 4,000 words ahead of schedule. So basically, that means I’m easily 2 days ahead already, and the month hasn’t even started yet! And as soon as that clock hits midnight, I’ll probably be writing some more and be that much more ahead. I can’t wait to really get going on this novel and to finally finish it after 6 long years! Camp NaNoWriMo won’t know what hit it once that clock hits midnight. Haha.
And of course, once April is over, the editing process will begin, my beta readers will enjoy a hopefully non-cheesy story, and then once I get some critique back the (::insert fanfare::) publishing process will begin!!! 😀 I hope to possibly publish this novel sometime this fall. And I am so excited to finally share this story with y’all!! Oh, and I should be back to blogging this month at least. Ironic, I know, but I’ll actually have stuff to blog about. I’m going to try to keep y’all updated on how it’s going, and what my current word count is out of the 50k. I also have a word counter widget in the sidebar where it will be consistantly updated with where I am in my novel.
I am just so excited, I feel like it’s just bubbling out of me. I’m trying to not freak out some random stranger in public though. I mean, I don’t want anyone to think I’m crazy or anything… 😉 But such is the life of a writer, and I do love it so.

     Off to see the wizard…and camp buddies…
