Well then! It has been an interesting six weeks without you guys! I survived my first year of NaNoWriMo without Internet. No small feat, I might add! Without all the distractions of Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and a slew of other distractions brought to you by Google, I finished writing my fifty thousand words ten days early!

On the fundraising front, I broke the halfway mark, but failed to reach my full goal of $250. Not a huge deal since I was also working full time, writing a novel, and enrolling myself in my first semester of college.

True to form, this November showed me what I’m truly made of. Once again, NaNoWriMo wished me to my limits and showed me that they were just silly restrictions that I had placed on myself based entirely on the fear that had managed to find its way into my gut. I learned that, with determination, even the most lofty of goals and seemingly impossible challenges can be met with a characteristically psychotic grin and overcome with excessive force.

My point here is this: That mountain may look huge from the base, but the view from the peak is worth the climb. Blisters and all.

I feel the need to let you know that this post is brought to you by the brand new iPad that I won from work today, so forgive the rambling. I just wanted to get something written for you guys and let you know that three years of literary success is mine! Congrats to those of you who finished the journey with me!

As always, happy writing!

      NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. 30 days, 50,000 words. It’s NUTS! But I’ve finished 3 first drafts thanks to it!
