Victory!

So, on November 29 I finished my 50,000 word NaNoWriMo novel.

What the heck is NaNoWriMo you ask? Well it is National Novel Writing Month. Every year thousands of people from all over the world spend the month of November writing their own 50,000 word novel for the heck of it. It is a month of pure literary abandon where we throw our internal editors out for a month and just push the word count.

I am pursuing writing as a career, but I am still testing the waters, so to speak. This month I learned alot about how much free time I actually have and how much I can get done in one month. The biggest thing was that it really was fun and I know this is something I can do on my own and have success.

Cheers,
Bryan
