Wow! I finally finished my novel after 20+ years of carrying the idea in my head. Thanks to NaNoWriMo, for lighting a fire under me and for keeping me going with the encouraging pep talks. I have to say, the last 5000 words were the toughest. The best part of all this is that I think the novel is actually GOOD! Even though it was written in fewer than 30 days, I think its good writing. I felt guilt last year when I signed up and didn't write a word. Now I feel the thrill of victory! Thanks Chris & crew for the inspiration.
I think I just might have another book in me for next November!
