So, you may be thinking, wasn't Carmen doing NaNo? What happened to that anyway?

Well, real life happened to that. But not in the way you think--real life happened in that I had too much inspiration, and the novel I started out with was not what I realized I wanted to write. The roundup for the month turned out something like this:

-30.000 words on the novel
-2 completed SPN fics (about 6.000 words)
-7 SPN beginnings (about 3.000 words)
-omg so many poems (about infinity words)
-3 short stories which need to be edited and posted (about 7.000 words)
-1 sonnet sequence (technically a crown of sonnets. also in dire need of editing.)
-1 insane research paper on the decade following the Brown v. Board of Education ruling in the southern US (2.800 words)
-1 fic that totally has nothing to do with Robin Hood at all and in fact doesn't exist
-4 short story introductions

In conclusion, I have been insanely productive. And while I did not technically win NaNo, I'm happy with the fact that I got this much done. *does writing dance*

NaNo!

I'm off to an over-1667 word start. I will call this "promising" and not pursue the point.

In addition, I've started a community for my novel, [livejournal.com profile] not_half_two, so I don't have to log in and out of yet another journal and also so my novel is nicely contained in journal that I can manipulate more effectively.

The first...chapter? Set of words. Is located here, should you choose to poke over and have a look. Subsequent updates will be noted here as well.

*breathes*

The story is coming together people. Coming together. And I'm no longer in a constant stare-down with the characters, which is a welcome change.
