This is the third year I have attempted this madness. But as of 8:26pm on 11/29/2008, I have submitted a draft novel to NaNrWriMo for verification. Total word count: 50,514, which qualifies me as a winner.
No, it’s not done. The draft is probably about 3/4 of the way complete, and I have some areas I need to go back and rework. I will keep working on it, steadily, and we’ll see where it ends up.
