Almost celebrating...

On Friday evening, when I was travelling down to London for a weekend of frolics with friends, I crossed the NaNo finish line, ending my journey with 50,023 words. While this is certainly a cause for celebration, the story isn't yet complete, and that's what my real goal is. I can't stop now. I think I'm over halfway through the story (though it might be surprise me and be longer or shorter than I expect...), so am beginning the downhill section. I've got a bottle of pink champagne waiting in the fridge for the day I type 'The End', and set myself a revised deadline of December 31st. I'll update my word counter to show the target as 100,000 words tomorrow, but until then, I'm enjoying having it look like I've finished!

Congratulations!!!! You've done so well! I'm in awe at how quickly you've done NaNoWriMo. The way things are going I'll finish too but probably only just!

Oh that's amazing - bloody well done! I'll be cheering you on to the finish line on 31st December (a whole 100,000 word novel in 2 months. Astonishing and inspiring stuff!)

That's an astonishing achievement. The rate you're going, I wouldn't be surprised if you get it finished this side of Xmas. And to think it's only a few months since you were all slow and frustrated! What a tremendous turn-around!
