Hangman is comin' down from the gallows...

I did it! So, in honor of finishing "Renegade:"



Actually, the song has nothing to do with the story, but it's the first thing that comes to mind when I think of the title, "Renegade." I do have my MC listening to the song in the opening scene, but not wanting to deal with copyright issues, I didn't actually say that's what he's listening to. So, when you get the chance to read it and see "the rock song blaring out of the radio," you'll know which song it is.

"Renegade" is 116 pages (and change), or I estimate about 24,000 words. I wrote 89 of those pages this month, blowing away any previous record for monthly output. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Now on to typing.

All of you doing NaNoWriMo, best of luck!

Congratulations!!!

Just FYI, naming a song that a character hears on the radio won't violate copyright issues...unless you start listing the lyrics in the manuscript.
