50,000 words and 27 days later

After being cajoled by several friends, I ventured into the world of NaNoWriMo for the first time ever this month. I just completed my 50,105-word novel in the genre of chick lit, and while it is not the world's greatest writing, it's completed--early. I highly recommend this for anyone who has ever considered writing a novel or just enjoys the pain of trying to create a plot, characters, dialogue, and additional pesky details out of nothing. Writing was a wonderful challenge and there is an incredible sense of accomplishment filling my soul right now. I only hope I feel this good when I finish my thesis next year.


  1. AWESOME! I will read it, yes please!

  2. NANOWRIMO always intrigued me, sadly I never had the discipline or creativity to throw myself into it. But you are a better person than I, so mad props. Respect.
