30 Days of Writing: Day Thirty

Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters!

Since I don’t so much have a blogging community (yet) that I could tag (and since this is technically from a LiveJournal community), I’ll have to just kind of sidestep this question entirely, which kind of ends the whole 30 Days of Writing thing on a bit of an anti-climax, but what can you do?

I would like to tip my virtual hat to J. Koyanagi in thanks for introducing me to the 30 Days in the first place, and to everyone who commented and joined me along the way.

To anyone reading who might be considering doing the 30 Days themselves, I wholeheartedly recommend that you give it a go; I appreciate that we are about to get into the thick of NaNoWriMo, so doing this as well might not be ideal, but the opportunity is always there.

Have I benefited from this mini project? Yes, definitely. If nothing else, it has given me a little taste at the daily goal rush I had for last year’s NaNo, which I am very shortly going to need again, and reminded me why I enjoy writing in the first place.

Of course, for a moment or so after finalising that post, I was feeling a little bit like Judge Dredd must’ve been feeling at the end of…well, Judge Dredd:

My best days are behind me, and I’m back on the road to nowhere. Right?

The feeling passed, of course, because now I have little over 3 weeks to research and outline enough of a novel plot to sustain another 30 days of writing in the form of NaNoWriMo 2010!


If you are interested in doing your own 30 Days of Writing, here are the questions.
