I won't make the deadline since I'm deployed in Afghanistan, but I'll continue on my story nonetheless. Congrats to you both, Ysavvryl & Se I Rais. You've earned it.


Thanks! I hope things go well over there in Afghanistan too.

Thank you! I remember reading a story on the NaNo site about someone who was deployed in Afghanistan and actually completed the 50k NaNoWriMo challenge! She also got her comrades and commanding officer to help her count out the words and everything! I think she transferred it to a computer. It was such a great story! Godspeed!


Also, 60,433 words so far! Huzzah! Exactly what I wanted. XD I'm becoming intrigued by the ending (okay, more like rising action). Usually when I get to endings I just ... I dunno, fizzle out. No idea why! I know how the ending will be, but I'm still figuring out why the characters are there, but it's always fun to start with a blank slate. I write more that way anyway. (:

I guess I might as well get on here, even though I have been finished for quite a while.

Woohoo! Another winner! You're going to give Ysav a challenge! whee Good luck, you two!

I'm glad these final words are pretty great and not some generic conjunction or something. XD
Thank you, both of you. It means a lot. smile

Okay whimiscaldreamer, got you added and put onto the Overachiever's list! And that is an amazing word to end up at 50K on; one year, I reached it with 'of', haha. Great work! And good luck with the rest of that 17K. There may be plenty of time, but can't become too much of a slacker.

Thank you. I do not plan on slacking anytime soon. I know last year my word was lame, I think it was "and".

Thank you, and I hope to be. Yes the winning words are very nice.

Well, I broke a 100K recently... and broke my spellchecker just before that! Hahaha! Take that for not liking fantasy spelling!

Okay Elfus, got you added! And great job! It's awesome to reach the goal and realize that you're not done yet because you love the story so much. I hope it turns out to be a popular book in the future!

I broke 100k and the word for that one is 'story'.
I have a feeling I will be making the next milestone before November is up.

50,000th Word: You're going to make me go back and find this? Fine... it's "and" (according to Word) or "change" (according to Q10 and the NaNo validator).

I hit it yesterday, BTW.
