So, everybody, I did a thing.
I’ll probably have more to say on this tomorrow, after I’ve had a bit of time to process it, but tonight, I passed the 50,000 word mark and officially “Won” NaNoWriMo.
I’m going to take some time to contemplate the meaning, and the meaninglessness of this achievement.
But regardless of how trivial this event might end up being in the long run, it is something I set out to do, and I did it.
I’m done writing for the evening, and celebrating with a well deserved (IMO) Moosehead to mark the occasion.
One thing I think I can do, though, while I can’t quite call myself a “Novelist” yet, as this “novel” isn’t finished, I do think that I’ve earned the right to call myself, at least ironically, a “writer”, without having to preface it with the term “aspiring” any longer.
