NaNoWriMo completed and verified!

Happy Dance.  Woo Hoo!  Wocka Wocka.  Hubba Hubba.  I did it!  OMG.  I wrote FIFTY THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY NINE WORDS in 29 days!  My Word document word counter says 50,356, and the nano validator says 50,289. But really, who's counting?  Well, I am, obviously, but I am not going to sweat the small stuff. 

Please to do not ask to see an excerpt before August of 2015, at which time I might be brave enough to open the file again and take another look. 

Okay.  I'm going to go get something to eat and see if I can find something tear-jerky to watch on In Demand.  I was compelled to post two things on Facebook today that made me cry--one was a youtube video by Pixar about "It Gets Better".  The other was about the medical transport teams that take injured troops from Afghanistan to Germany.  And it didn't have a happy ending.  I mean, at least, not for the kid they profiled.  Hopefully many more of the guys they transport come out okay. 

Okay, I'm done typing for today.  I really mean it.  As soon as I figure out how to put the little "NaNo Winner" thingy on my blog. 

C Ya!


  1. Congrats!!! I'm so glad you made it. And before the last day, too. Your doing it this year helped spur me on to the finish. So thanks for being a writing buddy.

    I opened up my NaNo story today and started rewriting the opening scene. So maybe it won't take you until 2015 to get back to yours. :) I'd spent so much time with it this month that after a week of largely ignoring it, I had to get back and work on it again.

  2. Woohoo! Congratulations all around!!!

  3. Congratulations! That's awesome. :)

  4. Yay! Still waiting on that Wocka Wocka emoticon. *waits*
