I won NaNoWriMo!

Actually, both me and my husband won NaNo this year. I guess the old adage about asking someone busy if you need something done is true. I mostly wrote my novel during the times when I would get up to pump breastmilk, and any free time I had (which was not much) would be spent in writing large chunks. There were about three or four days where I wrote 5,000 words, and even one in which I wrote 10,000! My husband has me beat in most words written in one sitting, though--at the very end of NaNo, he sat down with roughly 22,000 words written and didn't sleep until he had hit 50,000.

It felt good to be creative again. I can't wait until I'm done with my degree program and I'm able to have more free time!

Did anybody else reading this take a shot this year? (Better yet, did you win?)

Been better, been worse. :lol: I'm still going for my degree and working and I just had my son, Vincent. He's had some digestive issues--he couldn't handle various things in my diet (milk and soy proteins among them), so I had to stop breastfeeding him. He's had some moderate amounts of eczema as a result that we're trying to clear up. I had a car wreck which totaled my car about 2 weeks ago, but the kids weren't with me so they're fine. I won NaNoWriMo. So, a mixed bag, I'd say!

What about you?

Congratulations on the win! :D I tried to get into NaNoWriMo, but I could never actually find the time to spit out the words :XD:

I'm happy you have another kid! :) Sorry to hear about the car, though. Rob has been staying with me for some time now and I got a new job. I'm pursuing my Master's Degree in Psychology now, and he's about to obtain his Associate's. We're both getting better now, but still no wedding in the near future :XD:.

Hope your holidays are merry!
