I’m not sure what happened, but as of this morning I am now 5 cheers away. Yesterday I was only 3 cheers away. Huh.
I wonder if this is a common problem? I’ve noticed on occassion it will say that I have 11 cheers and I’ll give away 4 or 5 and then I get the “No more cheers for now!” message.
This was a HUGE achievement for me.

The Last Kashmiri Rose by Barbara Cleverly
Framing – something that the Amish accomplish in a single day with nothing more than primitive hand tools and sheer manpower, but for some reason takes me weeks and weeks.
At least now it sorta looks like a house. Roof goes on this week (given there is no snow), windows go on this weekend and doors beginning of next week.
of official NaNoWriMo Winners! Now I can proudly display my banner and take a final victory lap wearing my winners tshirt.
CONGRATS to all those who participated in NANO OH-NINE!
I want to take a moment to officially thank Chris Baty, the founding father of Nation Novel Writing Month. This month, thanks to NaNoWriMo, I was able to complete two goals with one pen/laptop. I 1.) finished NaNoWriMo, and 2.) wrote something every day for one month.
Thanks again to Chris and his wonderful crew.
Donated to the food basket at work.
Took up a collection for a gal at work that recently lost her mum.
Donated to NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers group.

Today is the last day of NaNoWriMo for 2009!! I’m not sure if I’m sad it’s over, or momumentally relieved… I’m going to go with relieved.
As of this morning, I had a total word count of 48,656. The goal of 50,000 words is well within my grasp unless I get hit by a bus. Even then I would finish even if I had to do the last 1,344 words by blinking in Morse code while in hospital in a full body cast.
43,000+ and a turkey leg and stuffing.
Total word count: 37,444
Was supposed to be at 38,333 by the end of Day 23. I’m less behind than I was, but still playing catch-up. I Went to the Write-In on Sunday, and we did two sessions of Word Wars that helped me close the gap.
I have fallen behind on my reading this month and I am totally going to blame it all on NaNoWriMo. Who has the time to read when you’re trying to bang out 50,000 words in 30 days?

The journal is off to Inner Guru. YAY! Bumblebee Goby is next on the list once I.G. gets done.
If anyone is interested, space is still open. Please don’t think this is a project just for those people that have the official title of “Artist” on their business cards. If you have a creative bone in your body, if you ever fingerpainted, if you glued a collage of a sheep with cotton balls, if you made a turkey out of an outline of your hand in grade school, if you wrote a bad poem, if you jotted a 6-word biography, if you ever took a photo (accidentally or on purpose)of your thumb – this project is for YOU.
