month of insanity, day twenty-seven

I win!!!!!!!!!!

At 9:38 p.m., my phone rang. When I hung up a few minutes later, I looked down at my word count and saw that it said 50,008. I immediately called Stubes. Then I sat down to wrap up my novel. At 10:45, I uploaded a scrambled version to the NaNoWriMo website, and this is what I saw:

The official NaNo word count is 50,718.


Tonight, I plan to sleep well.


  1. Congrats! But I have a question - what does it mean by you won? I guess I don't get the whole thing other than you set a goal to write so many words for a novel and then what? What did you win? Need explanation please!

  2. I agree--a celebration is in order!

    Karen, basically it just means that I accomplished the goal of writing at least 50,000 words. I did get a nifty pdf certificate that I can print if I want. I'm thinking I may put it on my bulletin board in my classroom :-)

  3. So proud of you -- can't "the mom" read it?

  4. did you write the book jacket? the synopsis of what the book is about? Maybe you can post that. I am quite curious about the general plot of it.

    congratulations! I am inspired.

  5. I guess I was just overthinking it. It does make more sense though. Thanks for the explanation!
