So some of you may know that I've been working really hard all month on a lovely little project. (Sorry if I haven't been commenting as often on your blogs!) I've been a little busy writing a book.
One of my favorite things about working on NaNoWriMo was the impromptu meetups (called write-ins) of fellow writers. Making new friends and realizing just how many people there are out there, in my own little neck of the woods trying to do the same awesome thing!
The other thing I loved was the handy little word counter bar graph. It was nice to see my progress and watch the visual of my word count grow.
So did you see it?
Looky Looky!! I'm a winner! I did it!
50,000 words in 30 days.
Like the NaNoWriMo website baosts "Thirty days and nights of literary abandon!
I did it. A big sigh of completion, happiness, and joy!
I submitted my story and look what they did.
I gotta tell you, I wasn't sure I could do it. I decided on the last day that I'd enter this competition.
I had to come to grips with the idea that it was a distinct possibility that I may not be able to finish but I realized for me it was more the act of trying to accomplish something bigger than I thought I could do. But when I got further into the month I realized I had a fighting chance. So I pushed on and pushed through. I'm so happy.
