End of NaNo, but not the novel

Well, National Novel Writing Month is over, and I finished.

So, 51,187 words of the first draft of "Threat From The Past" are now done. That's the fastest I've ever written anything, and it was a tone of fun. The novel isn't finished yet, and that's what I'm working on now.

I'm guessing it will take a couple of weeks or so to finish the very rough first draft. After that, I'm going to do some more editing on "A New Threat". There's some plot points that desperately need some sanding. ;) After that, I'll start on the second draft of the second book. I want to get both of these books polished, then I'll have them up for sale.

More tomorrow (or possibly Monday...) of my thoughts on what it was like to write that much that fast.
