From time to time.
In my previous blog entry, back in November, I vowed to complete a 50,000 word novella in one month. The first week went well, and I was almost ahead of schedule, until the inevitable happened. It always happens in November, and always when I'm trying to write - I ended up with two weeks' work. Usually, when this happens, I find myself at the beginning of December with less than 10,000 words. Not this time. This time I set my jaw, and had completed the whole thing by the early hours of November 29th. 50,027 words! Looking back, scripts included, I think it's the longest thing I've ever written, and I feel a huge sense of achievement. Of course, it's all very well throwing thousands of words into a document, but quite another to have them make any sense. I wasn't expecting much; it was, after all, my first successful attempt at writing such a large piece of work (compared to short stories and screenplays, anyway - full novels tend to be at least 80,000 words). I passed it on to a few people for feedback, and to my surprise and delight, they thought it was pretty good! I corrected all the errors and typos I could find (and that my proofreaders pointed out), and finally, it's here. In a few days, it will be available from Amazon, but in the meantime, it can be found at this link: Expurgated
I might take a copy with me to Cannes this year, and try to get it adapted...

I have the same issue, but I'm lazy also which leaves me accomplishing a whole lot of nothing. LOL Congrats on the novella.
