NaNoWriMo Ends

Another NaNoWriMo has been completed. Congratulations go to Rick O. for completing more than 50,000 words in the month of November. Nice work, Sir!
 

Many thanks to writing pals Jack, Tim, and Peggy. Special honors go to Peggy who topped 35,000 words for not only her first attempt at NaNoWriMo but her first attempt at writing a book length piece of fiction. Congrats!
 

That is what I love about this crazy event. It inspires people to write, to tackle an objective they've always wanted to do but never got around to trying.
 

My own attempt did not get to 50k, though I did get north of 35k. I still like the idea for the book as well as the characters who have developed in interesting ways over the past 30 days. Just remains to keep plugging away.
 

Many thanks to everyone who stopped by here to offer encouragement. It helped more than you could know.

Congrats for getting so much

Congrats for getting so much done. And as well all know, November is just the start of the process.

Thanks Steve. I'm hoping

Thanks Steve. I'm hoping that December, with some diligence, will be just as productive.

Math has never been my strong

Math has never been my strong suit, but it sounds an awful lot like you just wrote more than 1K words a day for a whole month. Holy crap--nice work!

Thanks Derek! It was in

Thanks Derek! It was in spurts, which is either more or less impressive I suppose. Something about hanging with writers for 4-5 hours at a go, all of them typing like mad, which I find inspiring.

Thanks for the praise Todd,

Thanks for the praise Todd, but I hardly made a dent. You and Peggy dominated. Maybe next year. :)

A dent is better than a

A dent is better than a divot. I think.

North of 35K is nothing to

North of 35K is nothing to sneeze at. And, comparing your numbers to any other writer invites self-deprication. If it is more than you would have normally written in that time period, it's beyond successful. Super proud of you, Todd ;)

Thanks L.A.! Good points; a

Thanks L.A.! Good points; a writer is their own worst critic.
