National Novel Writing Month - WINNER

One more day left people. Get those fingers pumping!

I managed to cross the finish line this morning, ending with 50,534. I have something resembling a novel, a little out of sorts, but definitely workable. November was tough and stressful, but now it's time for the rough stuff - making the words publishable.

I'd like to congratulate all of you who participated in National Novel Writing Month this year. Remember, there really are no winners or losers. We signed up, we gave it our all, and we gathered words together to create wonderful stories.

True, your story may be a little dysfunctional, out of order, or even a mess which seems beyond repair. True, you may be flustered, tired, and ready to burn the computer, the paper, the desk!

Take a deep breath and repeat after me, "I arrived, I wrote, I created, I won."

For an hour a day, two hours a day, or even fifteen minutes a day, you squashed the negative demon and wrote from the heart. Now, you know you can do it. No more excuses. Create, enjoy, be happy and positive.

Kitty, Thanks for the tag. This is the second time I've been tagged for the next big thing. :) I'll try to get something up this weekend. Have to decide which one of my WIP to highlight. Thanks again.
