Not only did I survive November, my month of writing for NaNoWriMo, where one commits to writing 50,000 words of a novel… in 30 days…, but I’ve ‘Won’, or successfully completed the requirements!
now has a sequel:
Just received an email from NaNo… with the following excerpt:
‘You did it! You reached the rarefied summit of 50,000 words, so it’s time to start celebrating your achievement.
Winning NaNoWriMo is no easy feat: more than 300,000 people signed up for NaNo, but you’re one of just 41,940 writers who had the creative chutzpah, derring-do, and outright stamina to cross the finish line. Pat yourself on the back profusely, do a jig or two, and make sure to visit the Winner Page for all sorts of celebratory whoops and hollers. And, just to remind you, we’ll send out details about collecting your winner’s prizes on December 5.
We hope you’ll keep your fantastic creative energy alive…’
… then I did the maths… I was one of only 13%! Made me feel good!
