Congrats, Valia! That's fantastic! :) I sort of wish I'd used the month of November to pound out something new and that I'd done 50K. Ah well. I added a bunch on to a story in progress, so that's good. :) Now you can kick back and enjoy the holidays knowing that you are a NaNo superstar!

Gr8 Vlog! Have you read anything by Connie Willis? Reading the Doomsday Book right now, thought you'd enjoy.

Congratulations!! I'm so excited for you! NaNo is such a great experience, and you feel just..so ACCOMPLISHED when you've done it, so proud. Congratulations!

This year, in the end, I decided not to continue with NaNo. I managed to knock over a pile of DVDs and discovered a documentary that made me think of a show I used to like. I put the two together and realized why I was being all grumbly-pants about that contemporary I keep working on and quitting. This is a way to make it less contemporary, and it made me SO EXCITED.

After that, I couldn't work on what I had been for NaNo because I was thinking of this new idea. Right now, I'd rather be doing as much research as I can and figuring out how everything is morphing, then do my own personal NaNo in January or February. So that's what happened on my part! :)

I'm so, so proud of you, though!!! Congrats again!
