I did it!!

I am the winner on NaNoWriMo
My novel is over, now with 55K words, and though it is not a book which I myself would have bought off the shelf, no it is nowhere near to a classic or even fit to eb submitted to a publisher, I am happy that I could write a whole novel in a month. Wow...I am so very happy!!!!
And extremely sad too - the whole month was such an adventure, that now December seems to be too bland. I really need some sleep after the late nights.

Congratulations on completing the novel, not that there was any doubt about you completing the novel but the sheer fact that the story has turned out to be too good and full of emotions. I think there is something in it which anyone can relate with. Atleast I was able to relate few things with me. Again, I have just read half and is eager to finish off the rest as fast as possible.

Keep up the spirit. I wuld like to read more of stories like this from you.
