Sorry for abandoning my daily update plan.

Today is a good day for two reasons:

1) I have finished the current draft of Windrose Hall - it stands at 66,000 words.
2) I have written 40,000 words during November.

These were the targets I said I'd have to reach in order to wear my shiny Nanowrimo t-shirt that arrived earlier this week.

I said I would consider myself a Nanowrimo winner if I finished Windrose Hall and wrote 50,000 words during November, however. So I want to write 10,000 more. I'm not sure what to do. I think the options are:

1) Short stories for competitions and/or my Yuletide assignment
2) Fragments of the sequel to Windrose Hall
3) Fanfiction on Windrose Hall - this would be like fragments of the sequel, but about things I don't think should happen canonically to the characters (though obviously I might change my mind).

Thinking about what might happen to the characters next would be useful, because it might inform edits I make to the current draft. And it's a bit more within the spirit of the challenge, since some books have little tasters of what comes next as a sort of epilogue.

Fanfiction on WH might be fun.

Yuletide I have to do anyway, so I should arguably make a start.

Another competition win or two before I start sending things to agents might be handy.

What do you think?

Congratulations!

It's best that you write your own fanfic before the slashers get hold of it. There may be worse things for an author, but I hesitate to ask what they might be.
