My fingers need a vacation after working overtime

I know that I have been quite whiny about reaching the goal of 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo, but I will whine no more. I have finished! I am done! 50,133 words was my count when I last validated and I am thrilled to be done! The novel is rough and needs major editing, but that will come in the future.

Completing this challenge has given me so much appreciation for my time. When I would once complain about not having time to watch TV or go to the gym, I can now see how much time I actually do have and I think I am going to be much more useful with those hours. In fact, completing this challenge helped me see that gigantic goals that seem unattainable can and will be accomplished if you set your mind to it.  I am planning a few more challenges for myself in the coming months. For now, I am going to catch up the the TV I have missed for the past 29 days.


  1. Awesome!! I'm impressed, good work, Laura!!! :)
