Anna, complete

Well, that was fun!

I really didn’t know where the story was going to go, since in the spirit of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) I wrote it day by day in strict forward sequence. I was getting to know the characters pretty much around the same time you were.

One thing I really liked about this technique was that it allowed me to incorporate your ideas. Whenever one of you wrote a comment, I would weave your thought, one way or another, into the next day’s chapter.

As you can imagine, this variant on cadavre exquis led to some pretty odd twists and turns, and that was definitely part of the fun.

For those who prefer to read their novels straight through, I’ve posted the Complete Novel, with horizontal lines to demarcate each of the 30 days of writing.
