My Official ‘Win’!!


I did it! I ‘won’ at nanowrimo and well ahead of schedule! I can’t even believe that I did it. I’m a little bit in shock. And I’m just a little bit tired. Hahaha!

My story is technically finished at this point since I just wrote the final scene, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Somewhere along the way I thought of a couple of things I wanted to add in, but I didn’t want to stop my progress to go back and add them. So that will be my first task. Then it’s time for the big reread. Then will be the fun of editing the whole thing. I have to say I’m really excited for the reread and the editing. I like editing and changing and manipulating the words to get them just right.

(sigh) I’m done. Whew. That was fun and intense. *SQUEEE* I’m done!

    Whoo hoo! Congratulations! Getting the first draft through to the end is the hardest part of all, IMO, revising and fixing is easy in comparison. Glad you didn’t stop to add, that always messes with the flow. Besides, I have no doubt you will have this revised and polished up in no time with all the things you want in there. Or maybe even taken out, if you need to! 😉

      Thanks Gianna! It feels great to be done the first draft…well except for the stuff that has to be added in. I’m celebrating with a rye and coke tonight instead of champagne!

      Hi Wendy and thanks! Don’t be jealous! If there’s one thing I’ve learned through nano, it’s that I can set a big goal for myself and find a way to meet it. You can do it too! What the heck, you have done it already!!!
