I did it!


I thought I'd given up at one point but somehow I could never bring myself to abandon the challenge completely. I think this might be my worst story yet but I'm sure there will be salvageable ideas in it.

My poor main characters are currently exploring a distant future and I think I ought to bring them back home before I call it quits.

I grew to like some of my main characters, although the Dad (sorry, I mean Papa because he's French) was a bit of a grumpuss and I wish I knew why my very main character was shying away from any sort of relationship.

Anyway, it's done. Now I can do all those things that I've not been getting around to, like Spanish homework and Christmas shopping.

Oh, and if you want a book that is actually a good read, I'm still recommending Ice Diaries by Lexi because that book has stayed in my mind ever since I read it. I know it will be high on my re-read list when I get my Christmas present, which this year is going to be a Kindle. Yay, Kindle!

Thanks, Love! I'm glad you like the title (it may be the best bit!)

Lexi said...

Congratulations, FH!

Now I want to know why your main character was shying away from any sort of relationship. I'm drawn to him already...

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Lexi. I'm glad you feel drawn to Sylvie! She's a bit of a mystery to me but a good one.

If elephants' trunks are for fanfares I'm so glad I don't live in Africa right now.

Huzzah!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Whirl!

I wonder how I can get trumpeting elephants into my nov- Oh, I don't have to now, do I?

Peter Dudley said...

Well done you. Well done, us.

Landra said...

Yay you! This papa grumpass is he suffering from 'stuck-on-a-stick' syndrome?

Super excited that you not only finished Nano, but that you're getting a Kindle. I have a super secret affair with mine. ;)

Now to find out more about Miss Lexi's book.

fairyhedgehog said...

Peter, yes indeed! Go us!

Landra, all Lexi's books are really well-written but I think the latest is my favourite.

I can't wait to get my Kindle.

Old Kitty said...

Yay!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! And wonderful that you've got tons of good stuff to work with from this mad venture!

I just got my badge too - I want to print out the certificate! LOL!

Take care

Kitty, Congratulations to you too! I never did find you over there - I'm fairyhedgehog there too.

Sylvia said...

Woohoo! Well done!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thank you, Sylvia!

Charmaine Clancy said...

Congratulations! It's a big job getting 50k words out in one month. I know I'm exhausted!

Don't worry, my last NaNo was atrocious! It's a total rewrite job, but at least it gets the plot down for me.

fairyhedgehog said...

Charmaine, thanks and congratulations to you too!

Writing 50,000 words seemed the most daunting thing at the beginning of November; editing 50,000 words is now looking the most daunting!

Simon Kewin said...

Woo hoo! Congratulations. Very impressive.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Simon!

jjdebenedictis said...

A belated congratulations! Yay, Fairy! (Sorry I didn't see this sooner--it's been a super-busy month in real life, and I have nearly fallen off the internet as a result.)

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, jj! I can understand about falling off the internet for a bit. Life can get very hectic at times!

Ivy S. Riddle said...

Thanks Ivy! Good wishes to you too (only I'm afraid I can't say them in German!)
