28 November 2008

50,304 words in 28 days I won nanowrimo. YEAAAAAAAAHHHH.
It was hard, because I forgot my first week, and I would have other stuff to work on, many times the decision to keep going or to stop hinged on how many words I could crank out in a "last chance power drive." My last one was yesterday, I was way behind and I wrote about 5000 in one sitting, thanks to a special playlist consisting of the theme music to "The Karate Kid", "Rocky", "Rocky 2" and Dragon Force's "Through the fire and the flames."

I would like to thank SomaFM's Indie Pop Rocks, Starbucks coffee, Stella Artois, and my trusty jump drive. I would also like to thank you, MetaChat, for distracting me in times of trouble, and giving me the occasional creative nudge.

I guess I have more free time than I though.

Now, if you'll excuse me, time to return to the real world.
Wow, congradges, hellojed.

I'm impressed, it usually takes me more than a month to read a novel. You must feel great. You going to share a link to it?

Hmm, what is a good file uploading service? the PDF is only 300k...

Granted, it's a NaNoWriMo novel, which means it's terrible.

I get my life back, and maybe my dignity if I'm lucky.

I signed up in the summer with all intentions of participating, but as November drew near I chickened out. Congrats for your stick-to-itness.

Congrats! I also signed up for this year's NaNoWriMo but my project died about one week into it.
