I DID IT!! 50,000 words in thirty days, and much like my school days--right up to the last few hours. But I'm getting better. To me, NaNo is more than just writing a bunch of words that you hopefully make into a story--it is a way for me to prove to myself, I can focus on writing a full length novel. I've done it before and I can do it again, and again, and again...in November or any time of the year.
Thank you NaNoWriMo...and here is to getting Intoxicating Spirit accepted by publisher soon.
And now...on to complete the novel and editing for submission.
