NaNoWriMo Winner! [Nov. 30th, 2005|01:33 pm]
[Current Mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

I wrote over 50,000 words of fiction during this month and won the NaNoWriMo challenge!

Novel title: "Icon of Greed"
Genre: fantasy (furry, natch)
Current length: 50,412 words
Est. final length: 80-90 K words
I'm feeling: tired but elated
I'm still in: my bathrobe
I claim to be: a novelist

Yay! I doubted that I could write that much (sorta-decent) fiction in a month but I managed it, somehow. Happy rat dance! :>

Edit: I updated my excerpt in myauthor profile at NaNoWriMo.org if you want to read a small sample. I caution you that the entire novel is still a rough draft, including the excerpt. :)

Eh... I hadn't been there yet... I pointed at one of the days, and it said 20,000 words or so... and I thought... "O gawds, HOW much did he write in a day???"

Hrm... I'll hafta take a look at the story itself later, I like long reads, arr.

Thank you for the encouragement. :)

I will need to actually complete the draft of the story. At 50K I'm just past halfway through the story. The there's some serious revision work ahead. But it just might turn into an actual novel... We'll see how it polishes up.
