It's A Wrap

Well NaNo is over for another year. The thing with NaNoWriMo you never know what it is going to throw at you. The secret is to accept what you can do and not stress about what you cannot do.

This year we have four ladies that reached the 50K mark.


AMBER ~ 52,907
HELEN ~ 50,246
JENN ~ 51,277
PAM ~ 51,083

To everyone who took part in the challenge to me you are all winners, to sit down and just attempt is a big challenge, to undertake such an endeavour while working and/or raising children is mind boggling to me.

At the end of the day or month, you now have more words than you did at the start of the month, which is an enormous plus for any writer. Keep up with your story, you never know it could be the next Emerald winner.

Oh, as an add incentive, there have been many a novel published that was a NaNoWriMo project. Nikki Logan is one example, and I’m pretty sure Suzanne Brandyn is another. So, finish, edit and submit those NaNo babies.

Now not that I’m going to put any pressure on any of you, but don’t forget JUNE, yes you have seven months until the next challenge ladies. Enjoy your time off.

Thank you everyone for the support you have shown one another. A big thank you to the ladies that helped with posts on the blog over the month. Diane thank you for keeping the girls going with sprints via 'Twitter'.


Happy writing

Still writing up to 56,500 words today.
Hopefully, it won't go in the Emerald next year. (Hope to have it published by then LOL)
Been a blast.
Signing out.

Thanks to Sandie for all her hard work and inspirational hints.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in Nanowrimo, and especially to the ladies who made it to the finish line.

Um Sandie, 1st June is now less than 6 months away, so you've only got 6 months to edit. :)

Crap, are you sure? LOL. Oh, well having the extra month for the day has been nice. Better get my finger out.
