Congtartulations to everyone who finished this year!

Also Timu for somehow doing NaNoWriMo twice over dear lord!

And thanks again to spider for all the great art.

Congratulations on the win. To you go the spoils,

How do the lot of you want your $10 steam winning rewards? I doubt all you want to be a steam friend though since that is the fastest way to deliver, my steam handle is the same as my resetera handle. For the rest, we can work it out however you prefer.
Wow this is very generous of you!

Edit: Sent a friend request over steam, thanks again.

I've been torn on whether to accept your generous offer. On one hand $10 steam is well $10 steam and it covers most of the cost of something like
https://store.steampowered.com/app/587430/I_Expect_You_To_Die/ (it's 12.50 right now but by the time people see this post it might be $25 lol)

on the other hand yes I hit 50k words, but I didn't quite finish what I wanted to finish so I kind of consider it a failure >.>

on the other other hand it's most of the cost of something like https://store.steampowered.com/app/777410/EarthNight/

on the other other other hand I know
" My general morning routing imploded the last couple of months and my November was derailed by losing half of my employees and flying all over the country to mitigate that. It's been nuts "

so you haven't had a good month and thus I think I will land on...

If you still want to give me $10 I won't say no, but if you are doing it because you want to stay true to your word don't worry about me. I respect that you are even owning up to your word given I think your excuse of everything going to crap would have been acceptable to the rest of you saying you can't stay true to your word anymore.

I mostly just hope you end up in a good place and can write like you want to :)

I'm trying to sound nice and all that but deep down I'm a little jealous that your generosity greatly outweighs mine :P



great work like usual. I would say just give my steam credit to you but I know you won't take it :P
Hahaha, it's also for selfish reasons. The real life consequences got me to a higher word count than I have ever before and I must pay out otherwise I know I will not maintain the lessons I learned this month. The only times in my life I've truly made progress was when there were finally real consequences.

I mean if you are looking to punish yourself and to do so would involve giving me $10 then I won't say no :P

my steam is the same as my era tag and the same as (rambles for 30 minutes as every account is zulux21 lol) The 21 is so that my account is almost never taken on any site :P

I forgot that this was even a thing. I don't really use Steam much so I don't really need it, but if you're sure, I think I added my Steam ID to my profile.

It took me two days and a lot of writing but I finished this Novel at 56828 words. Its kinda weird how it all evolved away from me, how details I threw in there for shits and giggles came in to play in clever ways later on. When I did the first of this fantasy series for last years nano, I kinda assumed it would end after the first but I had so much fun I wanted to come back to it again this year and I'm glad I did. Its nowhere near any of my best writing, but the ideas were definitely coming together in fun and interesting ways. Even though I am well on record for hating series, I guess I'm writing a fantasy series. I'm hoping next year will be the end and maybe Gael Darkson of the Darkson Brigade will save the world from a waking god, or maybe I'll go with my original idea of God waking up and just destroying it all? Question for October I suppose.

At the very least, I hope to finish a different novel before then.... one without the horrifying monthly timeframe.

Congrats on finishing the Novel and I wanna say thanks for all your work in organizing this thread and keeping the WC updated (must have been fun :P) and all the other active members with all their words of encouragement. The annual Nano threads were originally what got through the scare of writing a large amount of words and ignoring my own shortcomings so thanks for keeping them up year after year <3

Grats on making it! And I'll echo what Grudy said, thanks again for all the hard work in doing regular updates!

So I assume it went through? Ya earned it. Looking forward to seeing you guys in the CWC more. Still waiting for zulux21, FlowersisBritish, and PKthndr 3 days to be up to send. Haven't heard from most of the others on that list. May PM them when I have time later.
Mine just came through, so thanks again Midramble - a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one!

So who else hasn't written since nano ended :P

at 6 days without writing it's my longest streak since august 2017 without writing. the longest I had before this was a 4 day period in 2018 when family and friends were in town and it was too much of a pain to write without them noticing :P

I haven't, but I've still found myself thinking about the world of my story now and then and want to write more. That didn't happen to me with either previous NaNo I completed.
I've been meaning to do what I wanted to do during nano, but I have to write like 1.5k more words to finish what I worked on for nano first which I don't want to do... so I haven't been >.>

plus I was backing up, building and setting up a new computer since sunday so that's gotten in the way lol.
