Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
I did it!

I just passed the 50,000 word mark, and we couldn't wait to rush over and try the verifier. And so, at 50,313 words, I'm a 2005 NaNoWriMo winner!

Here's the link: Mistress Marilyn Wins NaNo!

All that's left is for me to print out my certificate and have Charlie make me a new icon.

Wow, I got tears in my eyes as I read the congratulatory message.

And if I write another 30,000 or so words, I may actually have something. Regardless, the story is so personal, it was tremendously cathartic to write it.

Charlie only has a few thousand words to go . . .

ETA: I got across the finish line by editing one of my earlier chapters, which I needed to do anyway but hadn't really planned to. I was so close, I thought, 'why not?'

Congratulations! So are you going to keep going right now and finish it, or are you going to take a bit of a break now that you've reached your goal? Anyway, way to go! :)

Congratulations!!!! That's fantastic!
29th-Nov-2005 01:34 am (UTC) - Wonderful! Congrats, MM!
That is just great news. I'm really glad both you and Charlie did this. (I'd so love it if Jim and I could do it some year...)

I'm really proud of you and would love to read your novel. (Even if it's not finished yet!)

Way to go, MM! Give yourself a pat on the back (or a hand job or something)!

Wow! Congrats. This is such a big accomplishment. Your certificate is so cute. You must make this into an icon. I am really happy for you. *Hug*
