I’m a winner in National Novel Writing Month! For those who haven’t been following, I surrendered most of my free time in the month of November to write a 50,000 word novel. I finished my word count ahead of schedule, completing 50,506 words late last night.
Of course, I have to display a winner’s badge on my blog:
I’m going to add a badge to the side column, as well!
The novel isn’t quite finished; I have about 3 chapters left to write of it, which I will complete in the next couple of months. After that, I’ll look into rewriting and editing it extensively and, if that works out, possibly getting it published!
In the meantime, I’m looking forward to having evenings in which I don’t stay up past midnight writing. Also, I’m going to get back to my regular science and weird fiction blogging starting immediately. Among the things to tackle over the next couple of weeks:
- Recent results in invisibility physics, including the idea of a “space-time cloak”
- A post on yet another early speculative model of the atom
- Some thoughts on science rockstars and cheerleaders
- Reviews of a bunch of science-y books
- A discussion of compressive sensing
- An explanation of the rather mysterious Wood’s anomaly
