A winner is me!
Well, that's one of my ten-year goals down, four to go! Next up: Hike the Pacific Crest Trail (ETA summer 2006), or perhaps get that tattoo (ETA undecided).

I'm going to sit back down and finish the novel now -- I validated it after I hit the 50K mark, but there's still a scene or two to wrap up tonight before it's totally done. Will finish uploading it after the final word is written.

And, for the benefit of those who have been patiently waiting all November for me to stop being all riddley with my story link, can someone in the audience point all interested parties at where I've posted the month's work? ]B=8)

I'll post a request for feedback on the novel a little later -- there are a few things I'm specifically wondering -- but in the meantime, you can also consider this an open thread for comments on "Notes from the End of the World."

Edit 7:30 a.m. Nov. 30:
Final word count: 54,586

Dec. 2:
Final rank: #767 out of 5,890 winners and 42,301 participants

Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished
Current Music: Queen, "The Miracle"

If you decide to hike the PCT, I've heard that it's better to purchase new pairs of good tennis shoes along the way rather than new hiking boots when they wear out. Mainly because it is more cost-effective.

Congratulations! :D It's a heady feeling, isn't it? I don't feel bad at all about not having completed my NaNoWriMo... it's still there, and I'm still thinking about it, and I'll keep working on it, dammit. ;) Yay!

I hit the 50,000 mark just yesterday and was so happy! ^_^ ... my story isn't done at ALL though! o_O I still have the whole entire end of it to write.. just a couple scenes in mind, but they're pretty big, and then I have to figure out some way to wrap the whole thing up into a finished.. thingey. Then, I have to go back and edit it! OH IT WILL BE FUN!

Congratulations!!! :D!!

Congratulations! I might be up for the PCT hike -- depends on if I have a real job at that point or not. :/

I'll probably make at least one section of it, though.

Rob and I have both been mumbling about doing a section or two as well.

I think I'll be storing my energy for a month in Europe.
