NaNo Triumph!

Take that, November!

You've been fighting my intentions to win NaNoWriMo. You've given me stress in the work place, depressingly bad weather, and the kind of exhaustion that has me wondering if I'm (a) narcoleptic or (b) pregnant. (No to both, in case you're hoping for a mini-DSW!)

But despite all that you have thrown at me, I have finally caught up my NaNoWriMo word count! That's right--after five and a half hours of diligent writing today, I finally broke the 25,000 barrier. Woo-hoo!

Let us celebrate this triumph with another graph, as victory may be short-lived and we need to commemorate the moment!

The subtext to this graphic is delicious. Just what were you doing on Nov. 3? Did you write the sex scene on Nov. 11? And what's going on with Nov. 8? Editing or did a cat sit on the keyboard?

Right. Encouragement. I've always found the halfway point to be the most difficult. If you've made it all seems downhill from there.

And by the way, you now have a moral imperative to get a PhD or an EdD.

Pregnant? Imagine a mini Kate Diamond, talk about a little jewel! Oh you wanted WRITING encouragement woops! There are numerous people waiting to read your wonderful work, we believe in you and love you very much.

I was not so NaNo triumphant. I hereby transfer all of my crazy-NaNo-writing-frenzy energy to you. Go, Katie, go! Win this one for the Gipper!

You will nail this! Way to go, partner (and send some of that sterling prose my way one of these days)
