Happily ever after

Yesterday (30 November 2006 at midnight) was the nanowrimo deadline. however, at just before midday I crossed the 50,000 word line with Chrysallis, the final character of the Daisy Chain. I then 'scrambled' my 50,489 word novel (when scrambled, all the letters of words end up as the letter 'a') and submitted it to the validation segment of the nanowrimo website. Almost instantly I received my winner's award (see above) and a little winner's message (see below). I'm glad I stuck it out and didn't give up.

You've Won!

Dear Novelist,

You did it.

Despite everything else going on in your busy life, you managed to pull off the creative coup of writing a 50,000-word novel in just one month.

When the going got tough, you got typing, and in four weeks, you built vast worlds and set them in motion. You created characters; quirky, interesting, passionate souls with lives and loves and ambitions as great as yours.

You stuck it out through the notoriously difficult middle stretch, and pressed onward as 80% of your fellow writers dropped out around you.

And now look at you: A NaNoWriMo winner. And the owner of a brand-new, potential-filled manuscript. It's an amazing accomplishment, and we're proud to have had you writing with us this year.
