Finding Forty; Day 184; I DID IT!!!!!

And on a totally unrelated note,  I wrote my first novel!

Its pitiful little title is "Convenient Love".   That makes me chuckle.

I finished this morning, clocking in with 50,014 words.

I haven't even gone back to reread the novel.  I am sure it's beyond horrid, but the challenge was to get the words in one month and I did it!

I feel happy and proud.


  1. Congratulations...I gave up the first week!

  2. Congrats, my dear! That's more than I've been able to do! :-D

    -Your Cheerleader

  3. Fantastic! So proud of you!

  4. Congrats for your achievement! Sorry again =(

  5. Congrats. I only recently found out about NaNoWriMo so I am impressed that you succeeded on your first try. That's a lot of words.

    Now what? Stephen King in his book "On Writing" says to put the manuscript away for a month or two then come back to edit. Do you have something publishable?

    I dropped in as I've just started by own "process" and was looking for insights about the road I've started down: scary, lonely, the end of the affair. Finding sixty.
