In your face NaNoWriMo. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.

NaNoWriMo is a weird word right? Well if you are a writer you are probably pretty familiar with it. What is NaNoWriMo?

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000 word, (approximately 175 page) novel by 11:59:59, November 30.

Well today is 11/20/12 and I not only got to my 50,000 words but I finished my story today. Came in at a slim 54,549. Since I write mainly Young Adult it is slim but not super slim.

My working title was “Dodging the End of the World”. It has a bit of a Zombie feel to it but I never used to word Zombie. Main character runs away from an infection and kind of hides out in a radio station for a while. Some killing, some romance, and some saving of the world later.

I really just wanted to gloat a bit. That’s right I am a winner.
