I won Nanowrimo this year! I just finished one day early with 50,084 words. That's about 80 pages and I am not quite finished with my novel but it is getting close to the end. I am so proud of my accomplishment. I worked hard and sacrificed time with my family and friends this year to put my writing first. I wrote on Thanksgiving. I wrote the day after Thanksgiving when my family went out for the afternoon, I chose to stay behind and write for two and a half hours. I feel blessed and lucky this year that I finally committed to myself and my dream.
