I Freakin' Did It

About forty-five minutes ago, I uploaded my submission to the NaNoWriMo website for verification. Their count? 50,102 words. Mine? 50,148. Doesn't really matter much, they are both over 50,000 words.

I just went back and looked at my writing log book. I keep a log of each day I write and how many words and pages on that day. Chalk it up to my accounting background. Anyway, when I counted the days I actually wrote this month, I found out I only wrote on 24 days.

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked about this. I finished Vesta and got 106 pages into TNN. I'd love to say I'm going to continue this pace, but December is coming. April may be the cruelest month, but December is none too friendly with writers. There's just too much going on between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I am thinking about trying for a repeat in February. Not much going on then and more than 24 days so . . . First I have to figure out what my December goals will be. I'll let you know on Monday.

But for now, I'm basking. And slacking off big time tomorrow and Sunday. Major video consumption tomorrow. A trip to see Twilight with some of the gang on Sunday. A nice reward, I'm thinking.

Thanks to all the cheerleaders who helped get me here. Once again, you guys rock.

I'm super thrilled for you :) You're exactly where you wanted to be this month, and that's very, very cool.

I'm doing a Nano in January, you wanna join me? Take a December break and then we can pound it out together...and there are 31 days...

I'll have to let you know, Jenny. I do want to keep going, even if at a slower pace, on TNN during December. And there are lots of revisions to be done on MMG and Vesta.

Maybe I'll design a NaNoReMo program for January. Hmmm.
