Updates and memes!  
The NaNo is finished!! I reached 50,000 words, now all I have to do is wait until the end of the month and go to the website to turn it in for word count. Whew.... I'm glad I did it, but I tell you, the pressure...I may not do it next year. But hey, at least I can say I did it.

And that also means that I'll be back to doing graphics again as well. YEAH! I missed them! I have some contests to enter later in the week. :D

What exactly is NaNo ? I read it before a couple of times but i have no idea what you are all talking about ?!?!?

Hi!
The full wording is NaNoWriMo and it stands for National Novel Writing Month. It only happens in November and you sign up on their website. You're supposed to write a novel in one month that's at least 50,000 words. Its a huge challenge, considering thats over 100 pages or so. The counter on the right sidebar shows my current progress. :)

Oh wow...50.000 words. That´s A LOT. *lol* Thanks for telling me.

Very welcome!

Not the first time I've written 50,000 word novels, just the first time I've done it in a month. UGH...don't know if I'll be doing it again. Thank goodness you don't have to submit it to anyone to read, just for word count, cuz mine is nothing but jumble. :)
Heikeabyssinia on November 27th, 2007 08:32 pm (UTC)
And you still have more than 10.000 words to do. LOOOOOTS of work. I have never done anything like this before.

I hadn't either. It was a great challenge. I suppose the best part of it all was that there was no expectation to make it perfect because you don't have to show anyone if you don't have to. I could just type and type and type and let it go. Only the prologue at this point is edited enough for anyone to read. Whether it sees the light of day or not I don't know, but it was fun nonetheless.

Way to go!!
Yay Melissa! I am glad you explained that was was, too! I thought it was an Ipod thingie...and was wondering how 50,000 fits into that!!!!

Congrats! And interesting things about you. You BETTER get to Vegas (should I run, too? LOL) so I can really and truly and finally meet you! :-)
