Meteoro Won!

Let me indulge myself with another "me" post so I can scream out loud:

Even if it was a crazy November, full of classes and work, a friend of mine convinced me to join NaNoWriMo this year. I always wanted to, but always feared it would be too much of a challenge for me, still, said "I will" (nonono, I didn't marry her, just this project).

So, today I reached the 50.000 word mark, submitted my material and there it was, my "I WON" certificate. Isn't it cool? The fun part is that my story is only half way, it is going larger than I expected, but now I know for sure I can go on until I finish it.

And what's this novel about? It's a bilingual story about this 32 year old Alonso guy who roleplays his Meteoro character too much in the web and just got back to college after things went sour both in his personal life and at work. Things start to go crazy as both real world and roleplay life start to blend.

Okay, I'm rambling. I want to dedicate all of this work to my one true love in life who held me together when I was going crazy through the month and who is still cheering me up when I loose my mind. You know who you are ;)

Fun fact: I was never this busy, yet I have never posted this much in the blog thingy.

Oh, wow, you participated in NaNo! I have some friends in Spokane who do that every year. Congratulations, Chris! :-)

Thanks a lot, Sea! It was a huuuuuuge task, heehee. I'm still half way the novel, though, so I'll keep on writing. Now without the pressure, of course, heehee.
