And that wraps up another NaNo

I crossed the finish line at 9:30 am NYC time, and what a wonderful feeling that is. I now have a first draft, and I get to spend the rest of the day feeling like I’ve done something. Here’s Mr. Earbrass’s version of this moment:

Edward Gorey, “The Unstrung Harp; or, Mr Earbrass Writes a Novel” (1953)

My “lower right-hand drawer” is actually a file on my computer, and my feet haven’t fallen asleep, but my calm is as deceptive as Mr Earbrass’s. I’ll need to walk it off. More of a writer’s story (Earbrass version) to come.

  1. Congratulations! I did NaNo a few years ago and I know the elation at the end.

    Enjoy your day!

      Thanks, Laurie. I’ll be at a bookstore tonight, where an author-friend is on a panel talking about mystery story settings. Just the inspiration I need to head into the revision process.
