No More NaNo? (Because Good News!)

I'm not officially dropping NaNoWriMo...but I'm probably not going to finish my vampire novel by the end of the month. Why? Because I have GOOD NEWS!!! (x 2)

On Saturday, I found out that a story and an illustration had been accepted for WeeOnes in January - Yay! And they want me to do another illustration as well - Woo Hoo!

On Sunday, I went to my portfolio review, and an editor requested 2 of my picture book dummies based on illustrations in my portfolio - Yippee! One of the dummies has also been requested by another editor at a different house. Both of the dummies are not done yet.

So, given that I need to do an illustration for Wee Ones and 2 pb dummies, I think my vampire book will have to go on the back burner. I'm still going to work on it, but not as much as I would have if I wasn't doing an illustration and 2 pb dummies.

Who knows, I might still get a 50k novel done by the end of the month, but the art stuff comes first.
