30 days. 52,917 words. My first time doing NaNoWriMo...and I WON. I am in shock right now. Shock and relief. I am trying to let it sink in. It may not sink in until I get my winner shirt (which I ordered tonight).

I made this meme-ish picture to express my feelings. The picture is from an episode of a show I like called Victorious:


In the show she says "I am a police officer, and I am victorious!" because she was playing a police officer for a method acting exercise and managed to win the challenge of staying in character all the way to the end.

Coincidentially, I also said this out loud (with the arms up and everything) once I realized I won.

Thank you God and thank you NaNo community...I couldn't done this without either of you!

I did it!

I wanted to quit so many times! But I didnt and now all the hard work finally paid off.
Did it make me a better writer? no. Worse? no.
But It helped me prove to myself that If I'm determined I can do whatever I want!

Took me 8 years, but hey one of your rebel mods with a 7-year losing streak actually DID IT THIS YEAR!

So even if you haven't won or don't win this year (depending on where you are), celebrate what you did do.

Some of you had power issues, some of you had tech issues, some of you just discovered what you tried wasn't your style.

NaNo isn't just about the words. It's about finding your cheerleaders and doing some self-discovery as a writer. And sometimes it's about realizing that Life Happens, the good bits and the bad bits, and you cannot always keep all the balls in the air.

But look at how far you did come, even if it's under 2k. What you have is probably more than what you started with, yes? (And even if it isn't, I would think you have learned something about yourself anyway even if it's just "I am too busy in November" or "I overloaded myself on projects".) So run with what you have learned here and keep being awesome.

And I can honestly say I could not have done this without all of you.

Thank you all for being such an AWESOME community of fellow writers. :D

51,705 words!

For a while there I didn't think I was going to be able to do it. Just before the start of NaNo I received word that my job transfer had gone through, so I've spent the entire month of November getting packed and re-homing my critter-cats. I had real life grab me up for one whole week and it took me a few days after that to get back into the groove of writing.

So, between packing, working full-time, and actually moving from Florida to Michigan, I have hit the goal! Now, to go find me some celebratory chocolate. I need it.

Made it!!!  Story's not finished, but the 50k are down and validated.  Once I get done feeling blissfully happy for a bit, it will be time to get back to the story and finish it (hopefully that doesn't require an additional 50k words).  :)

Novel's only a quarter done, but booyah! Second win ever. Now to celebrate with some Boy-made Hamburger Helper (my request) and Guinness Black. Living the high life, y'all.

Fifth year writing and this is my third win! I'm not even half way finished yet as the novel morphed into something unexpected in a good way and could go on for another 50K but at least now I can relax and do it at my own pace.

I have to admit writing with a strained tendon in the elbow is NOT easy, especially since I can only use my arm for a few hours a day but I managed, all the pain and struggle was worth it.

Phew! Now I can get to my volunteering job without worrying.

Thank you for all your wonderful support!

This is me right about now:


And to those of you who've been so supportive:


Yes, I know I'm extremely gif-y and I apologize but I'm all worded out.

THANK YOU to the sprint gang tonight, who are awesome cheerleaders. When I sat down tonight I was like, I have 5k to go, think I'll do ~2k tonight and the rest tomorrow. But they cheered me on and I DID IT ALL!

Entered every NaNoWriMo since 2003 (skipped 2010).

One win in 2009, just by the skin of my teeth.

For 2012?

50,267 words in 18 days, an average of 2,793 (and that's with three days off)!

Phew. I'm going to rest and get some sleep :)

Which, it turns out, is a lot like this:

followed by sitting quietly back down to get on with stuff.

Feels good, man. Feels good. This is officially the fastest I've ever completed NaNo, by like a week.

(gonna try and do another 92 words tonight,  though. That nearly-round number of words done today does not please the Jormy)

Hey y'all, I did it! :D

I wouldn't bother with the squee post except that I've been sick with the infectious pestilence since, oh, Friday or so, and it's been ridiculously hard to get my brain out of the sick-fog enough to write ANYTHING, much less make it to 50k. So yay! :D (You'd think that taking two days off work would result in mega word count, but I spent those two days sleeping or staring at this kitten cam, so not so much...)

I'm still nowhere near where I should be, plot-wise (halfway point in two days GAH!) but hopefully I'll feel better and start clawing that back.

To those of you still writing, YOU CAN DO IT! *cheerleads*

so um i seem to have hit 50 k now. like today.

Or in more hysterical terms:


or in calmer terms and more coherant words: I just wrote 50 k words in eight days.

50055 / 50000

Long story short (HAH): I hit the goal at six p.m. today, after writing 10 k words in 18 or so hours. I proceeded to request the highest of the fives from my sister, squeal at my brother, and tell anyone I could over IM. The longer story is here at DW.

So. That's where we are. I wrote 50k words. In 8 days. So, uh, should I aim for 100k? cause the story's maybe 1/4th done. Maybe an 8th. Tell you what. I'll aim for a high of 80 k by the end of the month, with total completion of the book by the end of December and ready for the go back and edit by inauguration day.

This unemployment is doing me some good.

I can't believe I almost forgot to do this... I won with 82,176 words. This is also my first year participating in Nano so I'm totally thrilled. I can't believe I rough drafted an entire novel in one month! XD

Total Wordcount Today: 50,166

Woohoo!! I've never won a November NaNo, I am immensely proud of myself!! Tired, and insane, and living on Lebkuchen, but PROUD!

Still, I have about 1/3 novel left to write, so hold the cake for now ^.^
