I am a Winner! #NaNoWriMo

Posted by maloki på 1 december, 2010


And there it was. After 30 days of hard work (on and off) I finished my first draft for a novel, ever. At 50573 words. I got met by applause and this message:

Author, on November 1 you accepted our challenge to write a novel in 30 days. Harnessed with a hard deadline, you persevered in the face of countless obstacles. You wrote with determination, you quieted that inner critic, and now you’ve reached the hallowed Winner’s Circle.

We couldn’t be more proud of your amazing accomplishment! Thank you for joining us on this outrageously creative adventure—we’ll see you next November for more. And we hope you’ll join us in April for Script Frenzy, too.

Before you go celebrate, we have some very special NaNoWriMo Winner Goodies for you. There are two paths to collecting them. We hope that NaNoWriMo meant enough to you that you will take a moment now and make a tax-deductible donation to help ensure that NaNoWriMo and the Young Writers Program are fully enabled for 2011! (If you’ve already donated, thank you so much for your contribution!)

When one defeat great challenges one always thank people, doesn’t one? Here goes.
First of all I have to thank the wonderful OlofB for his work on Devul that has helped me a whole deal while writing.
(if you have Flattr you can Flattr the application. Not, read this)
I also want to thank the Gothenburg cluster of Wrimos. Who I met up with for one coffee. Even though I did not get much writing done there it was still incredibly motivating!
Anyone that has cheered me on, be it random people on twitter, Wrimos and non Wrimos. People I know on Facebook. Or just people I know in real life, or wherever. Thank you!

I’ve learnt a lot about myself as a writer. But I think I’ll save that for another post I think. I know I can write a lot under pressure, if I put my mind into it. Which is something I can use.
I will definitely take part next year. If I got time.

Hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did!
