It is done. It is there. 50,727 words, although the NaNo calculator says it is 50,648... I don't care. It's done.
On November 1st I took an idea that I had planned, plotted, and cultivated. I wrote and wrote, had good days and bad. There was a bit of a family emergency that necessitated my travelling out of town for several days. There were times that I had no idea where they were going next.
But today, November 29... I have an entire novel. And I couldn't be happier, or more proud of myself.
I hope everyone participating in National Novel Writing Month, 2013, was successful. Personally, I think that even if you didn't hit the 50K that you've still accomplished something special. You wrote. You wrote your best, and you can finish if you want to!!!
