A Winner is Me!

Haha, damn right. A winner is who?

I’m just going to pretend that he drew this specifically for my NaNo novel, even though I know that’s totally a lie. Anyway, at 7:05 PM PST today, I validated my NaNoWriMo novel with 50457 words. Here’s my progress graph:

The original name for my novel, “Snake Oil Charmer”, went out the door almost immediately, since the story that the title is connected to… well, it didn’t really get written. I wrote a Gundam Wing fanfic instead. Hahaha ^_^;;; What? Don’t judge me. But I’m keeping the title for that other story, just in case I ever do write it (and I will because it’s not going to let me not write it, eventually)…

My word count (on the NaNo website) languished at 49898 for hours today, and finally one of my writing buddies messaged me to say,

your word count is killing me! 🙂

But then I updated the word count and input the novel into the “yes, I really did write that much” machine and I won! Yaaaaaaaaaaay. Now I can go back to normal life for a while. First thing on the agenda: homework. /ugh Then: email. /dies
