I am no longer just a participant

I sprinted to the finish line again this year, finishing my National Novel Writing Month project a little early. The process this year was much more enjoyable; I didn't sweat daily word counts, and that made it all okay. I just used the weekends to stay on pace, and Thanksgiving to blow the doors open.

This year's product overall was much better, too. It wasn't torture to wring it out--it just kind of glided along, almost writing itself, which was good. I still wouldn't want actual humans to read it, but at least it's readable this year. Last year's--ugh, ugh and ugh. (Among my other sins last year, I realized after I was done that at least half of the names I used were from "Heroes," and that when I was visualizing the action, I was visualizing the "Heroes" actors. Bad bad bad bad bad.)

The Winner banner is up, too.


  • (Savannah) Congratulations, darling. And I'm glad you're happy, or at least happier, with the final product. Hey, maybe next year you'll actually let me read it!!

    Either that or I want my 50,000-word ST:TNG parody.
