Winner, neeneer neeneer


Thirty days typing
50,000 words written
Time for a long nap

I had every intention of finishing this quest Thursday night. With less than 1,000 words to go, I fell asleep on the couch, only to wake up at 12:07 Friday morning. So much for “best laid plans.” I gave in to my exhaustion and went to bed. Up early Friday, I had a spark of inspiration and typed out 1,400 words in no time. I’m not finished with the rough draft. Like so many other NaNoWriMo participants, there is some epic editing necessary, but for the purposes of the word count requirements, I wrote a 50,000+ novel in 30 days.

There is now laundry to wash, dishes to clean, rugs to vacuum and floors to mop. There are also two menfolk who would like their mom/wife back.

Regardless what I end up doing with this literary marvel, meeting this challenge is a personal victory. I recommend everyone who fancies themselves a writer, to try this dare at least once. If for nothing else, to get in the habit of writing, something, anything, every day.

Congratulations to all the other participants. You are all superheroes to me.
