Nanowrimo Over, but the Writing Continues

I "WON" NANOWRIMO. I had lost almost two full weeks of writing due to editing a short story, family, and Thanksgiving. It took me until the very end to get it done, but that's what I did, with mere minutes to spare. The story wasn't completed just because NANO was though, so I had more writing to do. As well as some major editing. Sigh... I will say this though, I did edit some during Nano. :/ I know, I know, you're not supposed to, but my first Nano story was such a pita to work with afterwards, I couldn't let that happen again. Especially now when I'm making writing a priority in my new life.

My story, Evidence of Lies, is now for the most part done. I'm contemplating adding one or two more chapters, because something major happens to my main character after the story ends. When my sister in law read the story, that was one of the first things she commented on. She wanted it to happen, and I had not even hinted to her that it would. I'm pretty sure I need to add it. Realizing as I type that for me it's OK, because I know, but to a reader, they are left kind of hanging in that regard. I have been there as a reader, and it's very annoying. I guess I'll be off to get that worked out.

Brief Synopsis Of Evidence of Lies

When your happily ever after becomes a never ending nightmare you do what you can to wake up from it. After paying the ultimate price, Aubrianna begins to rebuild her life, and almost a year later the nightmare returns full force in ways she could never have expected.

I had a lot of fun with this one. Love triangles, affairs, murder, and framing an innocent person! It really is a lot of fun to kill characters off. Who new? :) 

Writing Tools

I just downloaded the 10 day free trial of MasterWriter. Going to play around with it while editing a few of my completed projects. I will let you know what I think. It looks pretty awesome!

Have a great Sunday all!
