NaNoWriNO and Ferguson Writings

NaNoWriMo is over, and by that I mean I failed to reach the word count of 50K. I’m not beating myself up too much. I got a novel off the ground to the tune of 10K that I really needed to get started on, so in a way my failure is merely cosmetic. This novel was always going to be more marathon than series of sprints. December is looking good for more earnest attempts.

It should be noted that I did a TON of writing this month, though mostly of the blog article variety. Ferguson happened (again, though differently), and while I had little new to offer on the larger picture of what’s been happening there that I hadn’t already said before, I did have something to say about the riots. Well, a few somethings.

Here is a list of just about everything of note that I wrote regarding Ferguson this past week. All in all it’s probably 5-10K that didn’t go into my NaNoWriMo novel, but I’m not complaining. This was necessary work.
