Just for bragging purposes, I want to mention that as of today I have reached 49,348 words in my Nanowrimo project for this year. I need to write another 652 words to reach my 50,000 word goal.

The project for this year is the post-apocalyptic universe that I worked on last year. Technically, I 'cheated' this year by incorporating stuff that I wrote last year but I also added a LOT of stuff that I didn't have last year and have actually come up with a plot, of all things!

I did something different this year: I wrote the entire project by hand. I haven't typed anything up yet (that starts in December, I am thinking), since doing so usually leads to me spending writing time backtracking by typing. I now have 160+ handwritten pages (in a 180 page notebook) and dozens upon dozens of sticky notes that make the notebook somewhat resemble a football.

But, and here's the important thing: I'm DOING IT this year! I'm actually doing it! And I'm going to finish this damn project and then move on to the damn project from 2007 because this writing thing is kinda/sorta becoming a habit now!

CONGRATULATIONS! And also, damn. I am always astonished by people who do any writing by hand, let alone NaNo.

One of the young women on my tumblr list actually did NaNoWriMo twice this year...and made her deadline a week before the end. I was flabbergasted.

Congratulations on making your word count, though! Are you going to eventually try to get this edited and published, or was it just practice?
