OMG! I DID IT!!!
And I did it against some unpleasant odds.
(Cue Richard Chamberlain and Rachel Ward getting steamy on a beach.. if memory serves...)
The Open Evening. Mayhem and Madness and utter idiocy in the lead up to every November 3rd (or thereabouts) and overtime a-plenty.
The head-on collision on the 6th. 'Nuff said.
The Girl's Sixteenth - a party for 17 hormonally ravaged teenagers with whiplash (that's mine - not theirs).
The realisation that I won't have a paid job come 2013.
And of course there was still the house to keep clean (yeah right) and the meals to prepare (ditto) and the shaky job to turn up at - but I did it.
And the feeling when that Winner's icon came flashing up big and bold on my screen once my word count was checked and verified was almost as exciting as the fact that I now have another Teenage book almost written and I did it in 4 weeks!
NaNo, I love you and I hate you and youalways make me cry - one way or the other.
Same time again next year then, yeah?
Oh, and congratulations also to fellow writer friends, Keris and Jacqui who've also passed the finish line.
