And like all good stories, it's not really over, we've just reached the point where we part ways with our heroes (and anti-heroes) and they ride off into the wild blue yonder into that nebulous post-story world, full of other adventures and new crises to overcome.

One thing that writing such a gigantic amount in such a short time taught me is that 'happily ever after' is entirely overrated. Life is messy and chaotic and tragic and beautiful.

There's always another adventure over the horizon, always another story to be told, another person to meet, somewhere. Last year, I started keeping a regular personal journal midway through NaNo. It was something I had never managed to keep up with in twenty years of life, and the more I write, the more I realize how much I have to learn about myself and everything else.

It's a good thing.

It means that I won't get bored anytime soon and that- god willin' and the creek don't rise- there will be another novel next year, more stories both before and after it, more things to see and learn and do.

If writing is an adventure and writing is all about life and death and the moments in between, then I've got a feeling it's gonna be a heck of a ride.

Like any good adventurer, I'm both totally ready and completely unprepared. And I can't wait.

Happy travels. :)

It's November 1. It's gonna be awesome, but up until 12:30 last night, I had no idea what I wanted to say, just a half dozen fragments of ideas.

Completely ignoring that fact, I started writing, and slowly the ideas started to come.

I have no idea where this novel is going to take me just yet, but I hear half the fun is getting there. That said, allons-y!.
