NaNoWriMo – Day 26

November 26, 2010

There is this challenge that starts every November 1st. They call it… NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month. The deal is you are supposed to write a novel no less than 50,000 words in the 30 days of November. All years prior I considered this brass ring beyond my reach – unachievable. Yet, year after year, hundreds of other writers completed the challenge. I questioned their sanity. Now I question mine.

On the 24th day of NaNo I crossed the 50,000 word line. For my winning submission I get neat little badges to put on my web site. (There’s one right over there —>)

And I get a certificate, suitable for framing.
