Did you Win?


I lost. When my best friend went on vacation, I totally freaked out. He was the one who pulled me through the first three weeks, and when he left, I only wanted to sit outside, in the sun, the same sun that shone (don't know if that word exists...) on him. So I lost, got around 35.000 words in the end. Ah well. Maybe in November, and otherwise next JulNo.

And how about you? Did you win, and are you celebrating it with a huge party, or did you lose, and crawled up in your bedroom, and don't want to talk to anyone?

I think I went into edit mode and lost my momentum after the first week, will try again next year or this November
Congratulations to all who did win, way to go!

I lost, I have so much done this vacation, wich is really rare. Normally I am bored to death, >_> too bad. (Did enjoy the summer though ^_^) I still got November. Then I will spend more time behind my cpu than outside, I'm pretty sure about that.

Oh well... still got plenty ideas to work on... ^_^




Stuck but still in progress; Isa and Tobias. (Yays for fairytales!)

I lost/won. My goal was 200k, and I fell 90k short of that, but we'll say I was aiming for 50k and won twice over? Okay, no, that's not fair. I suppose I should just say "I lost." Ah well. Like others have said, there's November. I think I'm just kind of burnt out for already having written 650k this year.

Congrats to those who've won!

I lost. The story didn't want to be that long and I hadn't enough time to start from scratch again or something like that.
And the heat tried to kill me! :rolleyes:
But I'm going to try again.

Congrats to the winners! I admire you. :)

Man, and here I thought I was going to be the worst off, word count-wise. XD I pretty much just got interrupted at the start (redecorating my room starting July 1st), then lost whatever momentum I had when I went to Nashville for a week. I do, however, like the universe I created, and I'll probably use it in my NaNo, which I already have ideas for.

Note: If you're intending to write a case novel based on CSI/NCIS/Law and Order/Bones/etc. it might be a good idea to have some idea what your case is about. ;) Those aren't quite so easy to pull out of nowhere.




I have just met you and I love you.

I won, but haven't started my 50k for this month yet, so I'm working on setting myself up for disaster.

17203. Feels pretty pathetic to me.

I think I need to have things going on in order for me to make a point of making time to write. Summer's just too big and open. And a bunch of things happened--like getting sick--that totally killed my motivation. So, yeah.

But I'm still going to finish this novel, yet-!! O.o

I lost, hit 44k and then my boyfriend had bad news so my writing just went out the window while I spent time trying to make him feel better. 44k is better than nothing though :)
