Camp NaNo victory!

I had several days where I was behind schedule, sometimes significantly. And this non-fiction project was starting to need research to fill out some empty spaces. Including watching lots of Classic Who. But... I did it. I just finished the conclusion and validated my word count. 50,189 was what my word processor said. It validated at 50,195. Gotta love that.

And now... tomorrow I buy a copy of Scrivner. I simply NEED it to keep everything in one place! And with a 50% discount for having won... score! :D

Now I can go back to beta reading and my editing work. Which reminds me... I need to locate everyone in my friends circle who's a Jane Austen fan and able to trade beta reading. I have three Austen novels that need editing work. :/

Way to go!

By the way, if you need scholarly journal articles, I have permanent alumni access to such lovely sites like JSTOR and EBSCOHost, just to name a few. I found all KINDS of fun stuff on fanfiction and other such subjects of delicious geekery (did a research paper on the legalities of fanfiction right before I joined LJ last summer). Just thought I'd offer that resource to you. It helps to see what other people have researched on some of those topics, especially in terms of qualitative research studies.

Thanks. :D

Ooh! Those might be useful for the history of fanfiction part of the fanfiction essay. Awesome! We'll chat once I've had a chance to consider what I need to research. And I'll be looking at writing blog posts to gain "experience" as a writer. Just a change of gears in May. :)
