NaNoWriMo done and dusted!

Well this years NaNo ended with the third book in my Serenity series at 50,046 words! Hurrah! I didn't write quite as much as I'd hoped (I was aiming for 60K) but as a lovely person I've recently met on twitter says, 'Aim for the stars and you'll land in the tree tops'! I guess that's what I did--I aimed big but got what I needed, so I'm happy with that.

For now, I'm taking a break from writing and I'm back to editing. Weirdly enough, after a month of pretty much no editing, I'm actually looking forward to getting back into it. My editor for The Dark Road, Shontrell Wade,  sent me her edits back at the end of November and I feel bad that I've only gone through a few chapters of them. However, now NaNo is over, all my attention will be going on Dark Road edits and I'm still hoping to  have the book out for the Xmas rush. Apparently there are going to be six million Kindle Fires sold this Xmas. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about what that means for eBook sales!


  1. That's a whole lot of Kindles, Marissa! Between them and the Smashword venues, the savvy writer can get some sales!

    Congratulations on being a NANO winner! You worked very hard and achieved your goals. Woo, hoo!


  2. Wow 6 million?? That's good for all us writers. I love this ebook revolution.
    Congrats on finishing your project! I only made it half way, but sometimes life gets the best of us.
