If there is a similar thread somewhere else, feel free to lock this.

It's the 30th of November, and (in my region, anyway) a couple of hours until the deadline for Nano. Have you finished or nearly finished? Celebrate here, YWS style. ;)

I started a novel, but unfortunately I only finished a paragraph. I'm absolutely going to go through with it next November, though!

Did you finish yours, Tigersprite?

Me? I didn't participate in Nano this year, because I was (and still am) working on a novel. I have finished 25,000 words of that, though. :)

I finished I finished! And it's my first year finishing and I'm insanely happy.

I reached wordcount just after midnight on the 21st, though, which was epic. Still working on actually finishing the novel, but I met wordcount.

Well done @ancientforever!

I finished too ... by the end of November, I had just a little over 70,000 words. This was my first year of ever even doing Nano so I was really pleased to have finished!

Now for National Novel Re-writing Year ... :wink: I might have managed to write 70,000 words, but in no way does that mean that they are a particularly good 70,000 words. :?

Congrats at @ancientforever! 50,000 by the 21st is amazing! And @MorningMist, how did you write 70k in one month? I really want to do Nano next year, but I don't know that I could actually finish. Ah well. It's the effort that counts, so they say.
Was it difficult for either of you?

'Twas difficult, but the word wars in chat helped a LOT. I love all my word warriors (too many to name right now xD), and it definitely helps you get a leg up if you're into that kind of thing.

And I'm /still/ working on finishing the novel... which I should actually do today... >.>

I finished on November 25th. :D Of the two NaNos I've done, it's the largest and the quickest done. -is impressed with self- However, it is in no way finished. It needs heavy editing and what I finished was only part one, yet I quite like it. As in, I think it has the slight ability to go somewhere, somewhat unlike my first NaNo novel.
My SPD senses are tingling.
