Almost over

Wow, it looks November is almost finished. Just one more day, and it will officially be the beginning of the end. One more month, and the year of 2011 will be at a close...

Time is rushing by too fast! Ah, but I'm getting ahead of myself.
NaNoWriMo is almost over now. I unfortunately didn't get to finish the novel I'd set myself. In fact, there have been days at a time when I didn't work on it at all. I've stopped bothering to update my word count on the official NaNo website. But I dont mind. I've actually been keeping a running total of not just words that I've written towards my novel, but EVERYTHING I've written this month. Anything I've typed out or hand-written on paper, I've kept a tally on. That includes journal entries, lists, blog posts, emails, chat conversations, yes, even my Facebook statuses and comments! I know it's not the normal way of doing things, but I really just wanted to see if, even if I didn't write a real novel, with a plot and characters and everything, whether I could write a "novel" with things I write every day.

I'll give the final "official" count tomorrow, because there are a few blog post besides this one that I want to fit in, but if my calculations are correct I have gone well past 45k words. It may not be 50k, but it sure is close to it! So I'm proud. And I'm also proud of the fact that I didn't publically give up this year. ^_^

Hmm... I'm thinking about whether I should mention something now or just wait to talk about it in better detail later... Ah, what the heck. I'll just say it now:

I'm going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter next week!!! :D

Can I just come with you? Please.


Hey, NaNo this year was just a warm-up, okay? Pshhhh, this was nothing. You'll knock 'em in the dust next year.

Hahaha. ^_^ If there was only a way to magic you to HP world with us. Lol. I'm really excited to go! Maybe I can get you a souvenir or something, to make you forget your jealousy? ^_~

Yeah, next November I'll try writing a real story. Hopefully I'll get to race alongside you.
