Ahh…NaNo completed!! I’m a winner~

Yep, I finally managed to complete my 50,000+ words for the month of November.  I had meant to sit down for 3 sessions today, but ended up not getting any writing done at all.  Then I sat down at around 6 pm and knocked out around 5000 words.  And it was actually a really good stopping place.  There are several more scenes I want to add.  I kind of left out about two years of that little boy’s life.  My plan is to have that novel be about the first five years of his life, then write the next one encompassing his growing up years.  Hey, it’s good to have a plan, right?








I feel a sense of accomplishment and, yes I’ll admit it, relief that I finished.  A big sigh of relief.  Now maybe I can clean my house.  Because when you’re working so many hours six days a week, then writing almost every night, something has to give.  For me, that was housework.  So I have some catching up to do.  Too bad I didn’t do a better job training those crazy cats to clean house.  They may not be much on housework, but they do like their basketball…Scout joined me watching the big game last night.  And yes, for any of you out of touch with college basketball…the Indiana Hoosiers won once again!  Oh yeah!

    • Thanks, girl!! Maybe someday we’ll walk into a bookstore and see out books sitting there on display…or is that too old-fashioned? Hmm…should I instead hope we find ourselves on the Amazon best-seller list?

  3. Fantastic!!!! Congratulations on meeting your goal, while you worked crazy hours and kept the rest of your life running. Glad you made the decision to let the housework slide a bit so you could concentrate on the writing. Way to go!

  4. Congratulations you wild writer woman!! 🙂

  5. Congratulations, Patti! I think NaNoWriMo winners should win a free housecleaning service!
