i'm done. i'm done. i'm really really done. la la la la la la la la.
i can't believe it. i survived NaNoWriMo. and came out victorious. i wrote 50,000 words in one month. 50,275 to be exact. i wrote a little bit extra for a little bit of padding, just in case the validator robots were picky. then i gratefully stopped typing. the story isn't done. but i am. for now at least. :)
at first i thought this would be hard. then i realized that 2 thousand words a day wasn't really that hard. as long as i had something to write about. then when i ran out of things to write about (d'oh!) and suffered from some major procrastinationitis, i didn't think i would finish. then in a day or two i wrote a few big ole chunks of words and started to catch myself up. i just finished typing up the last five thousand words. WOOOO!
well, not just finished. i had to validate the novel with the nanowrimo word-counting bots. which i did. and since i'm a winner i got this fancy little icon to flash around. so looky looky.
super cool. and i printed out the winners certificate. i'm thinking of having it framed. :) or at least lamenated.
now my name shows up in the winner's section of the website with a fancy purple bar over my name.
i feel so accomplished. :) and brain drained. seriously brain drained.
congratulations to Jodi, my sworn enemy for NaNoWriMo. she finished too. woohoo! and congratulations to all the other Super Genius Ninja Monkey From Outer Space who finished. :) and to everyone else who finished. or even attempted to to finish. super ninja monkey kudos to everyone!
hehehe. i'm so giddy. more better blog posts later. no more whining about silly wannabe 'novel'. ;)
