I did it! I won the National Novel Writing Month for 2011. My story is not finished yet, but I went ahead and verified my numbers. This is a great feeling. To all of you still plugging away, keep it up. You can do it! To my sponsors, thanks you for believing in me! My number is 50,182 which is slightly different than what my Word program says. But that’s ok. It’s still over 50K! Looking forward to the next project!

Nanowrimo Update

I have 42,002 words! That is what I’m thankful for this holiday. I’m thankful for all the family who made it to dinner today. And I’m sorry but now I’m going to hide in a corner and finish my last 8K. Much love to you all!
