I have been validated!

Well, for NaNoWriMo I have been Validated.

(the above thanks to Stacey Graham

I have validated at 56,132, even though I don't think that's even half of the novel. Yes, I am a little front heavy! And I've written shit since I had to clean my apartment and go away for Thanksgiving, not to mention the resulting altitude sickness. (It's a real thing. I can hardly move or do anything when I'm up in the mountains and even when I come home it takes a day or two to recover.) I had forsaken all housekeeping due to NaNo, and if on picking me up and dropping me off my relations had seen its state, I would have been put in a facility for those not capable of taking care of themselves. And then this novel would never get done. However, I now have a clean apartment in which to write!

There are four days left in November, and I hope to get 12k more added before November 30th. That means my target will be 68,116 if I make my daily word count. Only 21,884 off my goal of 90k. I'm not ready to sum up my NaNo experience yet, but I do think I would have kil't it if not for turkey day. 

How about you? Are you validated?


  1. Hey, congrats on finishing NaNoWriMo!!

  2. Thank you, Kay! :) and thanks for stoppin' by!

  3. Woo, great job! Yes, like you, I'm only partly done, but it's great to get that November jump-start. ^.^

  4. Not quite yet, but I will be after today. I hope. Depends on how busy my day job is. Speaking of which...I need to run some budget reports.

    Congrats on your validation!

  5. Good luck with those tsp reports! :) and good luck on NaNo!
