I made it to the finish line. I am a 2017 NANOWRIMO WINNER!
This year was tough. I didn’t think I could make it. Back in October, I was not even sure I’d do the challenge. With encouragement from some friends, I took the challenge. I knew if I joined, I would finish. I knew if I stayed focused, I could do it again and I did. My final count is 52,543 words. Not bad when I started from nothing at the last minute. I’m glad I took the challenge and jubilant that I finished.
It’s a first draft. It needs some editing. But for now, I’m taking a break and putting it away till January. I saved my draft in two places in case my computer conked out which it does every so often. I also made a hard copy. I find it easier to read than staring at my computer for hours. The easy part is over. The next step is harder when I start editing.
Now, I have to catch up on a lot of things I neglected while concentrating on NaNoWriMo challenge. My neck and my back hurt and my brain needs a break.
I’m proud of myself for achieving my goal.
Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.

Congratulations on the win, Rosalinda!! It’s good you’ll be putting it away until January, you’ll look at it again with fresh eyes.
Thanks GP. You’re absolutely right. Years ago, someone suggested we should put it away for a month before we delve into it again.
