Where's The Finish Line? -Pointing- It's Behind Me

I am done!  My novel is finished and my goal has been reached at 50,006 words, more than I have ever written on a single project. Right now I am listening to The NaNoWriMo Song by ALL CAPS as high as I can without my father coming in to yell at me. Actually, I think he may be being nice about it since he knows I just completed my NaNo. He just peered into my room, but he didn't say anything, so I guess I'm cool.

I just finished taking pictures of my officially full word count bar (you can see it in the flesh here) and the graph that has been recording my progress after the past two weeks. I'm about to start making this poster that will feature in another of my pictures and then place my novel in a nice little stack and take a picture of that too. Picture madness has overtaken me, but that's okay. You'll be seeing them all soon. Don't forget to check out the captions on them when they appear.

Another thing that I have done to celebrate (sort of) is I finally broke down and signed up to the Teen Ink website. I've decided that I will post only the poems that I would want to be published on there. As a matter of fact, at this very moment, my poem Orphan Questions is pending for approval to be posted on their site. This is also the time that they will be considering if they would like to publish it at a future date. I think. I'm not one-hundred percent sure on how all of this works but so far I seem to be doing everything right. Click here to see my profile. And yes, I did choose for my username to be the same name as my NaNo, it's in celebration of it after all. I'll be posting an avatar picture soon but you won't have to go there to see it because it'll be in the sidebar. It's the one my poster is going to be featuring in. Speaking of which, I should probably get to work on that. So while I'm doing that, why don't you check out The NaNoWriMo Song for yourself?


  1. Oh wow, Brooke. I can't believe you finished 50k words in two weeks! Congrats! ^^

  2. Thanks, Izzy. The rest of my little calendar is going to be red now. XD That's kind of disappointing. Ooooh, look! Madeline got to 25k!
