NaNoWriMo 2019 Follow-Up: Now Requiring a Follow-THROUGH

Getting to 50,000 words is the easy part:

Finishing up the next 3-4 chapters to have an honest-to-God novel is the harder part (getting it edited and PUBLISHED is the hardest...)

I shall keep on writing, krewe! This alien invasion story should be good to the last prod! Uh, drop.

The Thing That Motivates Me During NaNo Writing

It's a very simple reason I keep writing.

The characters I'm writing will present an interesting tidbit about themselves I didn't realize until halfway through the story I'm writing.

Granted, sometimes the secret they reveal stops me, because I can't keep writing them into a plot if they no longer fit it. But sometimes like what my two main characters I'm writing in my alien invasion plot just told me, it gives me a reason to add a chapter to flesh out that new development.

I might actually get this one done, unlike the four other novels languishing in the first draft stage.
