It was the same book as last year, but I changed the perspective to third person, added some characters, and rewrote the entire last half of the book. I'm still not thrilled with a few parts in the middle, but I have been learning a lot about story structure, and I have high hopes!
This year I enhanced the experience by having a support group on twitter and attending a Write-In at the local library. I also donated this year because I truly believe it is an organization worth supporting. Last year, I bought a travel mug. This year, I bought a t-shirt. I deserve nice things for doing what I love, right?
If you've been meaning to get around to writing that book, this might be the way to get it done. Of course, it is only a rough draft, and you'll still have to find the discipline and drive to edit it to a polish! That is my goal for the coming year. I want to have the manuscript beta-reader ready before November of next year. I have to be done by then, because I already have another book in mind for 2016!
Thanks to everyone for all of their support this month!
