I DID IT!!!
I wrote a novel in thirty days! 50,000 words, many tears, sleepless nights, nightmares, a lot of distractions and a long illness later, I am an official NaNoWriMo winner!!! I can't even begin to describe how great it feels to say that out loud. I think I'm going to cry and laugh and dance all at the same time. And then I'm going to go run some errands, pick up my husband and child, and have a celebratory dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers.
I wrote a novel, I wrote a novel, I wrote a novel! Yay me! I did it and I am still in shock that I managed to come back at the 11th hour and finish it up. I almost thought I wouldn't make it. I am torn as to whether or not I'll let anyone read it before I decide to take a hack and edit it up some. One thing is for sure, though: I don't want to look at that thing for at least a week!
Time to kick back and just enjoy my evenings again. And then, maybe I'll start to form another novel, lol.
Thanks for all the encouragement and kind words from everyone and for following along on this wild wacky torturous journey I decided to embark on. I can't wait to see what happens next!
