The Finish Line

Five more days, peeps. YOU CAN DO IT!


I'm lucky to have already had my first reader dive into my Nano book and send me notes. And it gives me a huge smile to know she totally got it--at all the right parts...just the boost of confidence I need as I dive into revisions. Thanks, Robin!

Time to report...how's Nano going for you? Are you gonna make it by Friday? Do I need to send you some emergency chocolate?


You are not alone in this...

You're brave letting someone read your NaNo novel already!

I finished at the weekend, but I'd never say no to emergency chocolate! :D

Bonnee Crawford said...

That's so awesome that you've already finished your NaNo! Great work! I had a NaNo goal of my own, rather than the traditional write 50k, and I've achieved that, so I'm happy. Keep writing and prepare those energy chocolate for those who need them!

Suzi said...

Congratulations!

I'm almost there. 44k. Pretty sure I'll make it. I want that cool badge!

I'm not participating in NaNo, but I can't believe November is almost over. I want to finish planning my new project so that I can start the first draft next month.

Um, can I still have the chocolate, even if I didn't participate in NaNo?

I have been hard at work editing. Something I hate, but have just been super encouraged by taking a baby step and sending it off for a critique. (And she actually liked it, so Wow.) I'm re-energized to get it revised and ready to go. I'm thinking maybe I don't suck so bad after all, and it's a good feeling!!

Kyra-Yay! Congrats on finishing.

Bonnee-Great job achieving your goal.

Suzi-You can do it. You're so close!

Stina-Ooh, I love that planning excitement. Good luck with your new project.

Jaybird-Of course you don't suck. :) Good for you for editing. I don't like it either, but it is nice to see my book get better and better when I do. Good luck!

Congratulations on winning NaNo! I'm almost there! Thanks again for the meme, I finally got my excerpt up on my blog--it's been a crazy week!

Robin said...

*blushes* can't wait to read it again. I forgot we could validate-adding to my LONG to do list for the day:)

I need some chocolate to finish my MS, so even though I "beat" NaNo, could you send some my way?

ilima said...

Julie-I loved your excerpt. And keep going, you're almost there!

Robin-Congrats on winning. I sure hope you finish your book soon. And thanks again for reading mine so fast. You rock!

I'm not doing NaNo, but it's been fun watching everyone else do it. Do I still get chocolate? :)

Sounds like you've got some great feedback and turnaround!
