I DID IT!!!!

Yee to the haw!  I hit 50,274 words a few minutes ago.  (You actually know about this momentous feat before Hubbykins because he is napping on the couch beating off a man cold, and I don't want to disturb him.)

I'll share my thoughts about the experience tomorrow.

For today, here's a C.S. Lewis quote that my friend Kristin e-mailed to me this afternoon.  I think he sums it up well:

"What you want is practice, practice, practice. It doesn’t matter what we write (at least this is my view) at our age, so long as we write continually as well as we can. I feel that every time I write a page either of prose or of verse, with real effort, even if it’s thrown into the fire the next minute, I am so much further on."

Be inspired, my friends.


  1. I had no doubt that you would meet your goal. That's just what you do. Enjoy some well-deserved rest.

  2. Woo-hoo! Congratulations! That's awesome!

  3. Yeah! I'm so happy for you!!

    And the Joy Fielding you should read first in definitely See Jane Run!

    THen I would read Mad River Road or The First TIme!

  4. Woo to the Hoo...You crack me up!


  5. That is such an amazing accomplishment - kudos! I have always been too chicken to ever attempt nano so I stand in awe of anyone who tackles (and overcomes/wins) it!!
