I did it! I effin did it!
I really cant believe how utterly good it feels. I have finished books before, 3 in fact, so I was prepared for the amazing feeling of accomplishment and pride. But this, finishing a novel in 24 days feels great! A real buzz.
Ok, so I haven’t completed the whole story, but I have gotten 85% of the way through it.
But the challenge set by NaNoWrimo was to write 50.000 words and I HAVE done that!
So, if you are still plagued by words that need to be typed and planned, bear this in mind. When you finish you will feel like the weight of the world has just been lifted off. You will feel like doing a silly dance and singing a silly ‘I did it’ song (I obviously am far too classy to do that)
“I did do that” *Said from back of hand whisper*
And you will feel GREAT! Really! Come on! get it done, join me in my silly dance and shout ‘I FLIPPIN DID IT!” at the top of your voice. Because it feels great.
Even though I had my mind blank on days, 9, 10, 11,12 and so on. I still think that I would do it again.
I love a challenge, I am competitive by nature and so NaNo is perfect for me!
Right, so I am off to go and have a celebratory coffee and cake with my Friends, I know rock and roll. But whatever, I like cake and Coffee and I know that my friends will share in a ‘squeee’ with me, because they know that they get to read it now!
Thank you Susan for getting me involved and thank you to everyone who cheered me on!
Same time, same place next year!
