NaNoWriMo Winner

I'm done! I'm done!

On Nov 28th, a full 2 days early, I finished the first draft on my NaNovel, Charley's Saint.

The final tally is a word count of 57,238 and a total of 256 pages.

Now the fun of editing begins. Not! Even as I sat back, twiddling my thumbs over my tummy, relishing the fact that the first draft was done, the idea of an epilogue germinated.

On another happy note,
my husband and I would like to send out a
big Happy Birthday to
the first of our love children.

This one was born 29 years ago today.

Crystal -Happy Birthday!

News Flash

…and in local news today, reports have been coming in from all over the city that Anita Mae has been spotted scouring local used book stores. Word on the street is that she’s heavily involved in NaNoWriMo although that rumor has yet to be confirmed. Evidence to the contrary yesterday has spiked allegations of time mismanagement. Last week we reported that Ms Mae was found typing furiously in a frozen vehicle behind the set of, allegedly while waiting for her children to finish work. If her actions yesterday are to be believed, Ms Mae will have have to step up production if she wants to reach 2007 NaNo goal. Only time will tell. This is your local news reporter, signing off from Regina, Saskatchewan.

2007 NaNoWriMo

Yesterday was the halfway point in National Novel Writing Month.

I started writing my NaNovel Charley's Saint on Nov 1st. I need to avg 1,833 words per day to have it written by the end of November.

As of the 15th, I have 30,773 out of the 55,000 words needed.
That's 56% complete!

This is my 1st year attempting the NaNoWriMo challenge.

Good luck with yours!
