A good run!  
Didn't make it to the end of NaNo. I feel like I fought the good fight, but bronchitis fought harder. Wrote some terrible prose, met some great peeps, learned Scrivener.

The important thing is: Tony Dovolani and Melissa Rycroft won Dancing With the Stars. (I'm happy beyond all reason, because it was possibly the happiest moment on DWTS ever and everybody flipped out and SEE, they didn't win their mirrorball trophy til their second try - or fourteenth try for Tony - and I'll get you next time, NaNo!)


As for me, NaNo/DWTS/my hope of someday breathing again is all inspiring me to plan a year-long NanoAnno project for 2013 to build a habit of prolificness. I'm not going to say I'll do 50K a month or something (and don't even get me STARTED on those people trying to write A Million Words in a year and tallying up every word they text and write on a shopping list and you could not pay me enough to spend a whole year counting). I'm thinking like 300K words or 50 completed things (and mixing and matching allowed - so I could write 25 completed things + 150K words). The idea needs work. I've been awake for about 2 hours, so time to go back to sleep!

Love to all! <3 <3

Ain't nobody got time for that!

...why on Earth would anyone challenge themselves to write and then keep a tally of a MILLION words in a year? Too much time on their hands!

Well done for keeping with NaNo despite feeling horrendously shitty!

Both what you accomplished during Nano this year, and your plans for next year, are completely and utterly MADE OF WIN!

You are still a winner in my book - look at how much you wrote! Go you!

I think you did awesomely well with NaNo. To me, it's not just about reaching the 50k, it's about WRITING and NOT GIVING UP, which is what you did. So great job! :D

You did NaNo!! It's ok that you didn't win this year! You've won before and you'll win again. But you wrote and you word sprinted and you word warred (with my drunken wrimos!) and you fought the good fight. You are awesome!! And everyone should celebrate the end of November with cheering like the one in your picture above. That's practically a picture of last night's Drunken Write-In picture, but with less tassle-and-disco-ball action. We had plenty of cheering and arms raised in celebration - and yes, dancing! Wish you'd been well and in Seattle last night - everyone got to celebrate, even those who didn't quite pass the finish line.
