He’s done it again! The absolute madman! He’s fracking, done it, again!
The first time I participated in NaNoWriMo, I crossed the threshold a day before the end. Last year it was on the last day itself. But this year I’ve exceeded every expectation I crossed my 50,000 words today! That’s not one, not two, but THREE whole days before the end of the month! Wow…
The moment before pressing that button to validate your word count, knowing that this time the counter will finally pass that magical number… It’s absolute exhilaration, no doubt about it. Every, single time! Then you push through and press the button. The banner appears. The NaNoWriMo team congratulates you with an awesome video. You see those words. You see those numbers… And then, when the streams of tears and adrenaline collide you know you’ve made it!
As I’m writing this I’m actually still so full of adrenaline I just don’t know what to do with it! It might be better to take a bit of time to relax, clear my head and calm my mind. If anything, this log will probably be a lot more coherent. At the same time, though I’m just so eager to share this amazing news with you all! I mean, the words have been reached, the shirt has been ordered and… Ah, yes, there’s the banner!
That’s right! I’ve just won NaNoWriMo for the third year in a row! WOOO!
The elation I’m experiencing is so incredible, it’s almost enough to make you forget there’s still three days left in the month. That’s three days to truly finish the story. No, it’s not quite over yet. Our knight and our kingpin still have a little bit longer to go before their adventure is concluded and I’m going to make sure they make it to that conclusion before this month is over!
For now, though, I’m going take that earlier advice: relax, clear my head and calm my mind. That way I should be well prepared to continue the final stages of the journey tomorrow! And I hope you’ll continue to join me, so that we can face these last days together!
