I've also given up. Cold weather just doesn't agree with me and my tolerance has decreased this year. Too much pain and fatigue to get a substantial amount of writing done every day. If I can keep up my average of 600 words every other day, I think I can actually finish this story though. It won't be very polished, and will probably have more than one gaping plot hole in it, but it will be complete. Eventually.

Congrats to those who have already won! And to those of you still in the race: go! go! go!

I reached 39k moments ago! :D I may get more written today, but I feel like I've done a lot pushing to finish this chapter already. I'm going to reach 50k in time. I'm determined. ;)

ETA: 40k; only 10k to write in the next 4 days. That's very doable.

I've, um, fallen very behind despite my strong start. I have about 26k right now. I'm hoping to be able to finish with 50k, but I'm not sure how that's possible right now. Fingers crossed that I can make it!! ;))

Well, this is it. The last day.

The end is in sight. Time for a final push.

Myself, I've got about 5,000 words to write still. Very doable; just have to go to the final write-in and do like I've done each Saturday.

If you still consider yourself even remotely in the race, then go for it! See you on the other side of the finish line!

As you may have figured out based on my new avatar, I have completed my 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo! :D There is still a good bit of work left to do to even finish this draft, and it will require lots of editing over the next few months/years (let's be honest, there's no telling when this will get finished, especially since I need to finish the current draft of the first book in this series).

Congrats to all the other winners/completers so far, and good luck to those who are still chugging along for 50k. If you haven't made it to 50k or don't make it, you're still a winner in my book because you at least tried to do something millions of people wouldn't consider. Congratulations to everyone for their attempts at NaNo this year. See you in 11 months! ;)

It's been sad seeing everyone dropping out, and dropping out myself after 10 days... This year just wasn't the same as previous years, but I'll take the blame for that.

BUT, my huge congrats to those finishing and who have finished! I have more respect for you all now that I have failed. ;) WOOT WOOT! *throws confetti*

I almost made my goal. I wrote 100k in one month but wasn't able to finish the novel, it just turned out to be waaaaaaay longer than I expected! I'm almost thinking of dividing into two books. But I'm glad I reached my goal of 100k (even though that meant writing 24k in two days)
I'm going to dedicate the first week of December to finishing my NaNo novel, then I'm going to put it aside till January while I work on a previous novel that I started and need to finish and edit.

hooray for all the winners *throws confetti and candy around*

(ooh, I thought I'd mention, that to celebrate my finished NaNo and winning, I went to my very first time ever Skillet concert; which was totally awesome and a great way to finish NaNoWriMo and November)

Would anyone like to exchange and read stories? I didn't do one this year but I recently finished the story I had written 2 years ago. :)

I'd be willing to MoonlightDancer! I remember thinking two years ago that your story sounded very interesting. Just shoot me a message if you're still interested... :)
