Hot damn and holy shit! I did it! I “won” at NaNoWWriMo 2010.
Around 10pm last night I hit the 50,000 word mark. (Actually, I surpassed, but once I saw I was past 50,000 I wanted to submit my results before the stroke of midnight.)
However, the story was not finished at 50,000+ words. So I forged ahead and finished it — or at least made it to the ending — though a few things will have to be filled out if/when I revise it.
For now, I’m trying to figure out how a writer does a victory lap. Maybe put the keyboard on the floor and run in a circle around it?
