Here it is: I have finished NaNoWriMo with 2 days to spare (I finished yesterday, I just didn't post). My final word count (when entered on the site) was 50035. I had to dig into the deepest, darkest crevices of my brain to get through it. I wanted to finish so badly that I just couldn't wait. Here's my graph that was on the website every day:
Pretty sweet, huh? And if you're wondering why my bars don't start until the seventh, well, it's because this story wasn't meant for NaNoWriMo. It was started earlier in the year but I decided to give it oomph. I made sure that I started when my word count was in a good position. I don't think it's cheating.
