I just did my verification a bit ago!!! Official winner!!
But as I said in my email to my mom "is the Novel done.. not by a long shot... the story still has a lot more to be written.. probably another 50K at least.. and a lot of stuff will most likely be cut out with editing too, but that is for later.. tonight I simply rejoice and relax! and will soon be off to bed.."
Tomorrow I will get back to writing, at least a little bit. Tomorrow starts NaNoFiMo (National Novel Finishing Month) and while I'm not sure I'm going to finish writing the first draft of my novel in the next month, I am going to participate in it, because I want to keep up the habit I have established this month of writing every day, even if it is only for 15 mins, because something is better then nothing! I only had two days this month that I wrote nothing at all, despite the exhaustion, etc..that is something I would like to maintain!
Congrats to everyone who has completed their 50K!!! And congratulations to everyone who just took them plunge even if you are not an official winner, the fact that you took the time this month to write for the love of writing, and gave yourself that opportunity to feel what it felt like to be a writer.. That is what NaNoWriMo is all about and just doing that makes you a winner in my eyes!!
, if you are reading this... congrats on your son! I think he was a perfect excuse to stop writing!!
