Done with Dreaming: A NaNo Follow-up

Life in Dreams is officially finished!  I met the 50,000 word goal for NaNo on Nov. 28, and yesterday I wrote the ending of the book.  Hooray!

It’s really rough, and it’s going to require a lot of editing and some major revisions.  That’s okay, though; I knew that was the case when I started NaNoWriMo.  The final word count is 54,634 and it is 25 chapters long, plus a prologue.  Whew.

I realized something as well – finishing Dreams means that I wrote not one but TWO complete novels in 2011.  That’s right, Dragon Pendant was also written entirely during this year as well!  Turned out to be a busy year.

I know, I know.  Go ahead, say it.  I wrote two novels and neither of them is a sequel to Butterflies!

Who knows?  2012 might finally be the year for Chasing to get off the ground.  And I’m hoping to revise either Dragon or Dreams enough to put it up on Smashwords with Butterflies.  I’ll keep you posted.
