Write-a-thon Final Thoughts

I am sad to see Britney Gulbrandsen's October Madness Write-a-thon come to an end! I learned from the challenges I participated in, and I loved the extra push to wrap up so many writing projects in spite of a busy week. Here are my original goals and how I did:

My Goals:
- Finish final edit on YA contemporary with reviewer's feedback (FINISHED!...for now)
- Write new synopsis to said YA contemporary (FINISHED!)
- Finish lyrics to YA contemporary (I know, random) (FINISHED!)
- Write short story draft (FINISHED!)
- Character and plot sketch for new YA historical in preparation for NaNoWriMo (5,000-word minimum goal, but hey, maybe I'll get more!) (1,000+ words completed)

I was able to edit a friend's manuscript during the week as well, so that cut into my word count on my WIP. But I was excited--super excited!--about the quality of the well over 1,000 words that came out (we'll see if I feel the same next time I read through it..haha!). Thanks, Britney, for the great write-a-thon week!
