It ROCKED this year. I hit my word count on the 17th and promptly slept for two days straight. I almost killed myself.

I'm rewriting Art of Creation though. I think you remember the main character... she who summons tentacled things in cauldrons. :3

Mmmmm. Mashed potatoes. *nomnomnomnom*

The 17th? Dang, woman. Shocked

And here I was kind of proud of myself for making it by the 20th.
While slightly cheating, at that.

Congrats! Cheese!

The 20th was my previous end date the last two years, but this year I had my significant other to spur me on with her epic skills.

Until she stopped writing, and then it was a matter of looking at that bar and going "I WILL FILL YOU, DANGIT."

I would never have made it without the earache, mind you. Not being able to sleep opens up a LOT of writing time.

I've been wondering awhile now, but what's NaNoWriMo?

Write a 50,000 word novel in only the 30 days of November! The title stands for National Novel Writing Month. It's a lot of fun, though sometimes people curse it as the craziest thing ever conceived by normal people. (This is by some of the Toronto region participants: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi2u2rMB__k )
Coincidentally, I also finished on the 17th, Xiao! This year I wrote the second novel in a set of somewhere between four and infinity. (Aja's illustrating the cover for the first one for me! <3 ) It was suprisingly easy this year. I attribute it to having an outline and LOTS of chocolate chips. Cheese!

*huggles Zela* Congratulations! You absolutely must give me your NaNoNick next year so we can Word War or something. I've made some absolutely incredible friends through the NaNo.

Mmmmm, chocolate chips. This year I went nuts with the cola and the tomato sauce flavoured chips - Smiths has made them an all-year flavour instead of a footy finals flavour. Happy~

Cola... and... tomato sauce... Shocked
No smiley can do my reaction justice.
I just used butterscotch chips and mint chocolate chips. And regular milk and dark chips.
Username is Yolashillinia! I will see you there next year!

Cola and tomato sauce? Are you talking about potato chips or chocolate chips?
