NaNoWriMo 2021 has begun!

This year I’ll be turning my novella GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND into an actual novel. It needs it, honestly. I also think that it gets to be the manuscript I send out to be endlessly rejected and/or brandish when somebody asks me, Do you have a novel available? I mean, I could self-publish it, but I don’t make enough to hope to publish more than one novel a year*.

It’s done.

Ha. Haha! HAhhaHAHA! IT’S DONE! Oh, it’s not a real book yet. It’s got twenty thousand words’ worth of connective tissue to establish and more characterization to develop and there’s a plot hole or three to fix and at least one scene to write, but: 60000 words! I made it! With a day to spare!
