52,050 Words-A NaNoWriMo Victory!

On November 20, 2006, at 2:33 a.m., I realized my goal. I hit 52,050 words on my novel I was writing for the National Novel Writing Month competition. I still have to get it verified through their website, but I am still in shock that I actually made it!

I feel in some ways like I climbed Mount Everest or ran the New York City Marathon! In short, I'm pooped! My dear BF (boyfriend), asked me if I was all done staying up all night writing. I replied, "For a little while!"

I am so thankful for the love and support of my son, my BF, my parents and my sister and brother and all of my friends and my friends at the Writers Life known as the Writersville Gang. They kept me going and made me feel like a winner when I finally realized my goal, and it is fitting that this is also Thanksgiving week. I am so thankful to all of you.

Now, I'm going to get some sleep!

Having completed your Nano thing Laura, made that a happy, happy day for you and for the rest of us too in the Writerslife Gang! Some we can all be proud of there!

And, while I'm here, writing those congratulations, since I'm late doing it as well - hope you have a great and happy, well-fed, Thanksgiving Day too!

You deserve it, kid!
