I'm getting close, so close I can taste the victory (and smell the fear). I was checking my Twitter feed this morning and one of my NaNoTwitMo friends (@chicklitgurrl) had a very interesting looking tweet that led to her blog -- which might I say, is sparkly and beautiful and very well written! And what to my wondering eyes did appear?
So, I have avowed that if it kills me I will cross the 5oK finish line and get my very own shiny winner's badge by 9:00 p.m. tonight. This will be quite the accomplishment considering it will require 3,102 words before the end of the day and tonight is the Beans in the Belfry Write-In where I usually do much more chatting than writing. However, I feel quite lucky that no reporters have contacted me requesting an interview this week.
On another note, I recommend that everyone read another one of my NaNoTwitMo friend's blog (@hownottowrite) How Not to Write: The Art of Writing without Writing. Not only is he a brilliant blogger and altruistic halo giver-awayer, but I've submitted a guest blog post about the last few stretches of NaNoveling. He also happens to have a shiny winner's badge which I covet.
We're almost there guys! If your enthusiasm is waning, I hope that I posted enough shiny winner's badges to make you all jealous and bang out those last few words! See you across the shiny finish line!!
