#NaNoWriMo winner!


Winner-180x180

Yes, I am a NaNoWriMo winner!

I wrote 51, 246 words in November (National Novel Writing Month). Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. There were days when I really didn’t want to write, but I needed to do this. The good part is that my novel is more than half written. The bad part is that it’s not finished. My goal now is to finish it by New Year’s, so I can edit it and have a finalized draft by the end of February.

I’m hoping I stick with it, with gazelle-like intensity. (Thank you, Dave Ramsey, for that metaphor.)

Here’s to all of the NaNoWriMo authors out there who met or exceeded their goals. November is a good month, but I’m happy it’s over.

      Thanks Elizabeth! Like you say in your post about NaNoWriMo, there’s a lot of rewriting to do on what I have written so far, but it was definitely worth it. A worthy challenge for authors!
