Total words written in November: 18,681.
Well, I failed NaNoWriMo. Pretty spectacularly, too. But that’s okay. I have nearly 20,000 words I like, and I feel like I understand my protagonists much better than I did a month ago.

Remember that week in October I spent developing a theoretical television concept? No? You can read about it here and here.

While I went in with a completely different concept, I was encouraged by my mentors to attempt to adapt The Edge Of The Woods, so we ran with that. It was a tough week, but we came out with something that we all felt sounded really exciting.
And the judging panel agreed! So I’m being given some money to write a pilot script.
How cool is that?
