I have done it!

50 566 words

I have done it - three years in a row I have completed NaNoWriMo.

My novel is not complete yet, it is going to require another few, maybe as many as another 10 or so chapters, but the word count goal is completed.

What an experience.  I love the rush and the challenge. To sit down on November 1st and face 50 000 words and a blank word document and just 26 short days later, to have a 50 000+ novel is amazing.

I am grateful to all my family and friends for your support. Thank you today to my darling husband, who knowing that I just wanted to get close, told me to go and write.

So today after over 6700 words, I have achieved my goal. Book Three is nearly finished.

I am a writer and you know what?  I can write!

Your area Writer Beverly, and you know what you can write, and I want to read it. Good luck with the finishing stretch. I too am almost there.
When we finish we must share a celebratory drink, albeit via the internet!!

Hey Mark T, this is Beverly's Mom, yes we sure will enjoy a celebratory wine one day. Both her Dad and I are very proud of her.

Congratulations Beverly, and here I sit moaning because I have 4 major essays left! That's about 10,000 words. I used to love to write and I think I still do, but the writing I love comes from the heart, not regurgitating others words.

I am looking forward to the day I can sit and read your writing, it's coming! I have a list of books I want to read, not have to... again the "having to" takes the fun out of it!

Do you plan to go back to uni? I'm just curious.

Have a wonderful day, I hope you take some time for yourself for a bit now before the holiday season is in full swing.

Dorothy thank you for the smile this morning, or do I call you anonymous now? ;-)
