Yes, dear readers, I did it! Yesterday I wrote the 50,150th word of my novel, and with that I won my second NaNoWriMo challenge in a row! My novel is not done yet and due to the fact that I have neglected my studies a bit this last month and have to catch up, I don’t expect to finish the novel before Christmas, but I did write more than 50,000 words in November. I was a little worried as I also had my gallbladder removed a little less than a week ago and I was in considerable pain for a few days, but I still managed to write and finish. And I did it all with my trusty fountain pen and three notebooks (two are full and the third one will be by the time I am done). It does feel good to see all those words written down, even though certain sections are hardly legible. Editing will have to come much later, although I do hope to actually edit this novel (unlike my last NaNoWriMo novel which is still in first draft form).
I am now going to relax, continue to recover from my surgery and catch up on my studies. Thanks for all of you who have supported my via Twitter and in real life.
