I've just hit this goal, with 25,068 words.  (According to Word.  As I'm not going to hit 50 anyway, I haven't bothered with NaNo's word count validator, other than once when it turned out lower than Word's word count by about 100 words, so I went with Word's.  Cheesy  )

That's awesome, Star!

And the same for you, Melamphoros!

I'm impressed you both made your goals with all the craziness your lives have been giving you.

*applause for everyone*

Woohoot!  Grin Grin Grin

Stepping into the winner's circle to join Finn!  I hit 50K tonight as well, defying all possible odds and my own inner critic.  Now, I just need to finish the last half chapter and write an epilogue.  Smiley

 Shocked You're actually almost done with the novel?!

Lord, I'm barely a third of the way into the story. Probably even less. Oh well.  Tongue

The bare bones are down on paper, but it really needs quite a bit of fleshing out before it will be complete.  I knew the story would never get finished if I didn't plow straight through it (as witnessed by the box of unfinished stories sitting upstairs).  I'm going to take a few days off, let the keyboard cool down, and then it's on to the second draft.

Me too and probably for the exact same reasons. Wink

I'm in the home stretch, just a little over 500 left to write.  In a few minutes I'm going to do a sprint to see how many I can get out.

 Cheesy  Would that be you or your characters who are being tortured at this point?   Sprint away my friend!

Seconding what HeartShadow said.  It's good to be around other people who are as warped twisted creative as I am.  Cheesy

My characters.  I'm having to much fun to be tortured, unless I have a masochist streak I don't know about Tongue

That's why I love the NaNo Forums so much Wink

The sprint helped a little.  ONLY 306 WORDS LEFT Grin!  That should just be enough to finish this chapter.

Now if you excuse me my antagonist needs to kill an innocent bystander.

You could be right.  I'm a masochist for writing a novel AND doing NaNo AND enjoying it.

But to my characters I will always be the sadistic god who is waiting to drop the ax on them <insert devil here>

I have finally got to my goal word count!  I am ending NaNoWriMo with 25,193.

I think I will take a much needed break and resume writing tomorrow.  Now I am going to knock out a second goal on my list and finish reading that book!

Hoorah!!! Congrats on reaching your goal.  As for the innocent bystander... well, he/she did walk into your novel, so they only have themselves to blame (says the writer who "accidently" let a couple bystanders get reaped in her novel!).

And what a good excuse it is for doing strange things. Almost as good as "I'm a film student."  Grin
