NaNoWriMo 2017. Log 27: 50,000!

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!


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
