Melody
Woohoo!!! I can't believe I have done it! This all seems so surreal to me.

To-date I have done a total of 50,388 words, and still counting; since I haven't complete the novel yet. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who has given me support and encouragement during this month; without you all, I wouldn't have made it! And to critters and friends of Critique Circle as well, you guys rock! GO, CC, GO!!!

By the way, this is my link Melody's Profile at Nano if you are interested. It shows you my overall performance and other ranks as well.

Also, I have just managed to print out the winner's certificate, and it looks so cool... and right now, I just don't care if there are lots of craps written in it, hehe. It's a huge accomplishment to me (since I have never written a novel before!), and all the hard work and time spent is definitely well worth it.

    WOW Melody - 50, 388! It nice to see that you're the winner...of course I knew that about you :) It is neat to see your excerpt to your story up there online.

    I might try this next year....only you have to do it with me too LOL!


  2. Melody Says:

    Julia, in fact I have already asked you to do so this year but you hesitated!!! LOL. Anyway, I will try my best to coax you into doing it next year, so no more excuses then, hehe...


  3. Julia Says:

    I hesisted because I thought there is NO way I can do 50k in month LOL...plus I stink at writing story.

    Yes - tried to push me to do it next year, but..er...I can't promise you LOL *wink*

    Julia, initially I don't believe I'm able to produce 50k words within a month too, but it works because of peer pressure, persistence and encouragement from the fellow Nanoers.

    At the end of the day, we don't really care how much grammatical or spelling mistakes we have made, because the bottom line is, we have written 50k words within a month and that is an accomplishment and something to be proud of! :-)

    I hope I'm able to coax you into doing this next year! *wink*

    Melody - oh I don't work well under peer pressure LOL....

    We'll see if I do it next year LOL *wink*...and maybe...Darla will do it with us too LOL

    Wow, congratulations, Melody! So, how close are you to finishing the book? You will finish it, won't you?

    Thanks Darla! :-)
    To tell you honestly, my story hasn't end yet (perhaps 3/4 towards the end), and I'm procastinating, now that the pressure is off! But yes, I will continue writing, hehe.

    As mentioned by Julia, perhaps I will get both of you to enter Nano next year!!! LOL.
