NanoWrimo 2010 - I did it!!

It took me 25 days of self-egging on, if you will to reach 50,000 words. The result: my first ever complete novel! I am ecstatic to say the least. Today I finally finished the entire story at 55533 words. This is what I would call going above and beyond. I am still basking in the success of actually finishing it and I keep avoiding the task of redrafting that I will have to do. But, yes, I did the first draft in 27 days. I can easily do a redraft and another redraft.

I came across Protagonize, a collaborative writing community and signed up. I'll be posting chapters from my novel up there on my profile as soon as I can. If you want to follow the story, check out my profile here.

Now I think I deserve a luscious bar of chocolate in celebration!


  1. You're incredible! I'm totally blown off after reading 3 chapters of “Princess Petuna and the Fifth Dimension. I think you did great in continuation of the story chapters after chapters. And I like the way that you add small remarks at the top of your story to tell your readers what is going to happen shortly. :)

  2. Thanks so much Zhongming!! :) I'm really glad you're enjoying it! :) I'm posting chapters of the second draft up there on protag as I edit them so feel free to give feedback or comments :)

  3. :-) Congrats!! I get busy for 3 weeks and come back to find a wealth of posts and the full novel!!
    I am overwhelmed now! :-) Will comment as I go :-)

  4. hehe :) thank you!! You must read the novel and tell me what you think. I'm still in second draft stage and still have a lot of work to do with it :)
