I Win

Well, I did it. I finished my 50,000 word novella this month. Nobody else is ever going to read this thing, but it was still useful to me. In fact, I'd recommend NaNoWriMo to just about anyone. Why? Well, for a couple of reasons. Deadlines are quite motivating. If you meet a deadline in one thing, it can inspire confidence in other things as well. It's quite cathartic. If you set out to write 50,000 words in a fairly short period of time, sooner or later, you hit something significant.
So, later this week, I'll get back to a little more substantial blogging. For now, here's a few more things on my list of gifts to be thankful for.

Congratulations, Nancy! And you finished two days early before the end of the motnh - an extra bonus!
