Power corrupts, but without power it's too dark to see... or something like that. At any rate, lack of power is bad for the life of your laptop battery.
In short this was not a month conducive to quiet contemplation of the antics of boys, robots and mad scientists.
I have enough words here and there written about Howard Carter to have cobbled together enough of a draft to hit the magic number and get my "NaNoWriMo Winner" badge, but it wouldn't be a novel, it would be a pastiche of different ideas, many of which didn't work. There are those who say the wordcount is all, but I disagree. The goal was to write a novel. If it was all about hitting wordcounts, I could've transcribed the dictionary and hit the mark easily enough.
I came here to tell a story and that is what I am going to do.
Howard Carter shall continue until he's done with me and I'm done with him. As I am a man of my word, I shall continue to write his current adventure and post updates as I finish each chapter.
So no, I did not finish NaNoWriMo in high style. Earnest congratulations go out to those who managed it. This is no small thing, writing 50,000 words in thirty days. And though I didn't "win" I refuse to mourn either the rainout or the loss of a single game in what is - in the end - a long season.
