NaNoWriMo Conclusion

November is over and I can climb back out from under the constant word count pressure. For those of you who are new to the blog, or simply missed my previous post about National Novel Writing Month, let me reiterate it's awesomeness...

National Novel Writing Month is a program put on by the insanely cool people from the Office of Letters and Light. It is a non-profit program geared toward spreading the light of writing and literacy. Nano itself gives would-be writers that little push over the edge (yes. it goes to 11) to get started on a novel of their own. This was my 2nd WriMo and my second win! I crossed the 50,000 word finish line late in the day on November 29th!

For those of you curious what the result of "30 days and nights of literary abandon" looks like, here is my finished 50,000 word manuscript. The writing is insanely bad, but well, there's a reason why I program computers and not write books for a living!

For those of you who didn't participate in NaNoWriMo 2010 but wished you did... join me in April 2011 for ScriptFrenzy! (write a 100 page screenplay in a month)

  2. Yay Ricky! Congrats on finishing! And I complain about getting 6 weeks to write a 10 page paper... Everything always gets put in perspective. lol. Love ya!
