I DID IT!!!!!
Started it while working two part time jobs, quit one, the other became full time, got a new job, packed up my belongings for a move on December 2nd AND managed to complete NaNo TWO DAYS before the 30th.
*faints from lack of sleep*
NaNoSprints on Twitter helped me through a lot of the tough times, as did Word Wars with friends who aren’t even in the same time zone as me.
I attended my first Write-In tonight as well, leaving me in a great position when it finished to power through the last 2,000 words to reach a final count of 50,028 words.
The sentence that pushed me to Winning: Through all their stories, none of them followed what we had learned in the trainings aside from “The Circle is Bad, don’t say their names” and the “Don’t be an idiot” rule.
Clearly, this is also good advice for life.
So for all those out there who have yet to reach your 50,000, I say this to you. I’ll be waiting for you in the Winner’s Circle. There’s a spot right next to me that needs to be filled by you.
