Ta-Dah!! NaNo 2008 Complete! Finally!

It is not pretty. It is not even "right" most likely.

But for now, I don't care.

It's done! It's done! IT'S DONE!!!

I can move on. I can do something else now! I've started a pirate story... ??!?

I know: pirates - WTF, but cool! I'm hoping to cram it into 5000 words and submit it to Membra Disjecta for their March issue.

I'll let ya know how that goes... (Short stories are definitely not one of my strengths as a writer...)

Way to go, Bethanie! Definitely write the short story. It's amazing what it can teach you (although I struggle mightily each time I undertake a shorter work).

Congrats on finishing!

You know you have a beta reader when you're ready. *winks*

wee! *Snoppy dance* Congrats Bethanie! I second the beta offer, if ever you should have need of me.

And of course, good luck with the pirate short story. :D

Woot for you! I'm proud of your writing life and all you accomplish therein.

Bethanie said...

Wow, thanks, ladies! I'll be taking up those beta-reader offers as soon as it's presentable (which won't be soon, I think).

Back to my pirates! :-D

Mazel Tov, my friend! Isn't it a great feeling to be done -- for now?

Bethanie said...

Thanks, Susan! It is... was... for the moment... except that I know I have SO much work to do on it still! :)
