I finally finished the National Novel Writing Month

I have finally finished the National Novel Writing Month, with my targeted goal of 50.000 words for the month of November.

The working title of my manuscript is Willow Creek, a romantic suspense. This one is not a cross genre as my previous two unpublished novels, as it had a mind of it's own and took that path. I love my heroine, Cassie Kincaid (Cassandra) and also the hero Jake Thornton. They are a lively couple, and a great match. I thoroughly enjoyed writing this story.

Here I am at the finish line. Yah! I've pasted the novel in the word count section in the NaNo site for validation although I am yet to write a synopsis and excerpt. I do hope that will be finalised before the end of the month but I have to get back to another manuscript and up the romance a bit more. :) 

Good Luck everyone, and keep on going. It's a matter of sitting in your chair and staying there until you reach your target goal words for the day. Oh, don't forget long walks, yoga, swimming, it's all good to refresh the mind and body. 

And when it isn't flowing think of scenes. Picture each scene at a time, and hopefully it should flow. I did. :)

You've really mastered it this time. I'm impressed. I'm still flagging at thirty six thousand. But as you said we will get there.

I hope this one and the other two find a home.
