I won NaNoWriMo 2008!
What the NaNoWriMo 2008 winner goodies page said:
Through storm and sun, you traversed the noveling seas. Pitted against a merciless deadline and fighting hordes of distractions, you persevered. You launched yourself bravely into Week One, sailed through the churning waters of Week Two, skirted the mutinous shoals of Weeks Three and Four, and now have landed, victorious, in a place that few adventurers ever see.
We congratulate you on your hard work, salute your discipline and follow-through, and celebrate your imagination.
You did something amazing this month, novelist. We couldn’t be prouder.
The goal was 50,000 words in one month. I passed that goal by the 16th November, idled for a week, then managed a personal record of 15,000 in one day, 20,000 in a weekend, to take me to 71,416 words.
