I've decided not to pay for the full license of the application that was enabled for the challenge participants. I captured all the steps and created a master spreadsheet that I think is more straight forward, easier to navigate and will keep me organized. I can still use the free version of the application and pay for the full license at any time, if I choose to.
National Novel Writing Month is still several days away, but I will begin drafting On the Ropes before November 1st. I want to go over what I've prepared so far, fill in any story and description gaps and then I'll get started with the first draft with the intention of a completed first draft by November 30th.
I'll keep you updated on my progress along the way!
