I am captain of the world!
Not to be confused with king of the world – that’s from Titanic.
No, I am Captain Alex of the Starship NaNoWriMo!!!
That’s right – after twenty eight days of hunt and peck typing, I managed to complete the NaNo challenge. I ended yesterday with 50,975 words, well over the target – and with more of the story to write. (And probably a lot to re-write as well!)
Several of my NaNo buddies are also big winners – congratulations to Hart, Falen, Jen, Lola, Clarissa, Lynda, Jemi, Emily, Golden, Charity, Pk, Melissa, Brad, and Anna.
And a couple are so close! Go Ellie and Ted!!! You can do it.
Thanks to everyone who’s stuck with me during November while I devoted several hours a day to writing instead of blogging. (And of course a big thanks to my wife whom I intend to lavish with attention after ignoring her for a month.)
Ninja Alex is back! Captain Ninja Alex…
