I’m a WINNER!!!

Yes, you heard it right here, folks:

I am the champion of the world!!!

(Yep, that’s right, the Queen song has been going through my head ever since I hit that little Validate button on the NaNo site.)

Okay, so that might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but I am seriously SO excited that I hit my 50,000 word goal today, two days early. AND I have a nearly finished first draft (I might even be able to finish it by the 30th, but if not it will be done very soon after because I am so close).

I managed to write at a super steady pace, so that helped me a lot. Take a look at my little graphy thing:


See how beautiful and smooth it looks?

Um, okay, I’ll stop now. But, seriously, I am downright giddy right now!

I did it, I did it, I did it, Hooray!

(That one’s being sung in my head to the tune of the Dora the Explorer theme song, so you know for sure I’ve gone over the deep end.)

    • Yes, since it’s MG, I’m trying to keep the book somewhere around 50K. I will definitely add some detail when I edit, so I’m guessing the final product will be a bit longer, but I only have a couple of scenes left in the book for the first draft—I’m almost there!

  1. Congratulations, Nicole! That is fantastic. I’m glad you’re satisfied with the story, too, and wish you luck with finishing it! Do you have any plans for publishing it yet?

  2. Hey! Way to go. I know how hard it is to meet a goal like that. I participated only once and it was an epic fail and it wasn’t for the lack of trying. You should be very proud.
