There were a couple of days that i didnt write at all, and i really wish i had. I think that a two-week novel is possible. I just need more practice and more anti-burnout/time management strategies. Which means i will be trying this again in the near future (mwuahaha... )
In the meantime, i've got the better part of a novel I'm excited about, and i hope to finish it the first week of september (after i get back from vacation). I think i will try to make this the middle bok of a trilogy
Anyway even though i didnt make it, i wanted to say thanks for the support guys :) It's been an adventure and it always helps to feel like there's people rooting for you.
In the words of i-don't-know-who: Onwards and upwards! And happy writing :)

Liz, you monster
Now, I have to ask - did you start with just an idea, or an outline, or just a couple of bulletpoints? Did you explore the characters and world beforehand or was everything done from skratch during the two weeks?
Ah, I've just seen the blog post - damn, I have to make myself jump right in and go nuts. I usually have to know the ending, and a couple of checkpoints in the middle.
