My NaNoWriMo novel: Finished at last!

I just had to write a brief post to celebrate: I finally, finally finished writing my NaNoWriMo project!  For those who have been reading me for a while, you know that I officially completed NaNoWriMo’s 50k words by the 28th of November.  However, I still had two chapters to write to actually complete the book.  Those two damn chapters took me another two months to write!  (This is a good demonstration of why having a strict writing deadline is important.)  Now, at last, I’m finished: the final novel word count was 61.5k.  Maybe I can get back to writing my textbook, now…

    I’ve actually got a novel on my hard drive (in LaTeX, of course) which has been gestating and expanding for just over six years. I’m hoping to finish it this month. . . .

  2. Congratulations Honey! We should celebrate. I’ve got some champagne in the fridge…

  3. Babs67 & Blake: Thanks! It feels good to be done; the only damper on the celebrating is that I’m already thinking of ideas for the next NaNoWriMo…

    Good luck finishing your own novel, Blake!
