Proto'd Yet Again

Ok, so it's the 29th and I have story #3 finished well enough to edit it for a second draft. It has a beginning, middle and end and lots of notes. It's 5k, which is shorter, but it's more of a fairy tale and I just can't see that it needs more worldbuilding. Compared to the other two, it's a standard setting, if fantastical.

So I end the National Novel Writing month with 3 proto stories and 25k words that I hadn't committed to paper before. That's a winner.

I can hardly realize it, but my writing retreat is next Sat/Sun and while I have a few things to do this week, I can just keep going for a bit and then switch over for the retreat. Not sure if I should continue to bang out new content (Cumin's story) or work on completing the incomplete gen ship story.
