yay! woohoo! i won nanowrimo! eid sayyid!

November 27, 2009 § 5 Comments

so i finally crossed the 50,000 word mark on the novel for national novel writing month.  exciting.  aza is still cheering for me.  although i dont think that she knows what she is cheering for.  she has though, told me several times this morning that i am awesome and beautiful.

so happy to have finished this on the morning of eid.

the novel isnt finished.  i mean the story isnt over.  i just finally reached 50,000 words.  fucking awesome. but i have more to do to actually have a completed rough draft.

it is a fascinating to write a novel so quickly.  i gave up on all pretenses to grammer, spelling, constructions, etc.

i fell in love with write or die.  it pushed me to write off the top of my brain and trust the movie that was running across my head and just write down what i saw.

    once i saw how far behind i was last week (lol), i settled on a personal goal of 25K by monday…this was my first year trying, and it was a challenge.

    Awesome! Mabrook! I love how nano gets the bodies going, it seems like that is the hardest part–to get it out of the heady head. I’m perty sure that Lee Maracle wrote Ravensong as a dare to write a novel in 30 days or less or something like that.

      thank you. thank you. frankly…it has been an incredible month in terms of having to put down the most ludicrous ideas that i was sure was going to ruin everything that i had written before and to realize, actually, no, it works. it really does work.
