I finished the first draft of my Christmas novella Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family. It's funny (at least I sure hope it is, since that was my intention), and the romantic subplot grew beyond what I originally intended it to be. All in all, it still needs work, but I'm largely happy with it so far. It's about 23,000 words right now. I'll see how it stands after revision.
I'm also working on my story for the IWSG anthology contest right now. The story is based on an idea I had awhile back, but I never sat down to write it before now. Since the idea fit the theme of the contest, I decided this was the time to go for it.
I also signed up for a couple of Halloween challenges. One is Spooktoberfest. I sign up for this one every year, so even though I'm going to be particularly busy with writing this month, I just couldn't pass it up. It's tradition!
I'm also signed up for the WEP Halloween challenge. The theme for this one is Youthful Frights vs. Adult Fears. I enjoyed WEP so much last time that I knew I had to do it again!
I'm glad that my writing has been keeping me so busy, and I hope I can stay on track with everything I've planned to do.
What would you like to celebrate?
