Behind the Scenes

I am a NaNoWriMo winner!

2013-Winner-Square-ButtonYes, you’ve read it correctly, I reached the 50.000 words, so I ‘won’ NaNoWriMo this year! Wooohoo! The last week went swimmingly and I wrote a lot. I found an old story that was a bit the same as what I am writing now, and decided to rewrite a huge part of that story so it fitted in with my new story. It helped me a lot, and it gave me a lot of inspiration! Of course now, I have to edit the novel and I might get less or more than the amount of words that I have now (52,311 to be exact), but I am just so glad I made it!

I have validated my novel and I can’t wait to see all the winner’s goodies we’re going to get on 5 December (which is also when we celebrate ‘Pakjesavond’, aka Sinterklaas’ birthday, on which we come together and give gifts to each other (a bit like Christmas)).

But for now I am just going to celebrate that I got 50.000 words and I am going to save the novel and not touch it until after I’ve seen the Hobbit on 11 December, haha!
