Crossing the NaNoWrimo Finish Line

I just crossed over the 50K mark and wanted to thank you all for the support you have given me throughout the month. This year I have met so many wonderful writers. I have also had the opportunity to strengthen bonds with writers from NaNos past. You have all provided me with encouraging words and inspiration. In particular I would like to thank:

My Co-ML Lamishia – Thank you for your help this year. It was worth the effort!

My teen writers from Samuels Public Library – You amaze me with you perseverance.

My POC Kate (arrows for pens) – You are such a beautiful and smart young lady and I am so proud to have you as a friend. (I hope we continue to chat on Twitter!)

My friend Emily – Even though we didn’t get to see each other much this season, I am so glad you are feeling better! Whenever I get in a pickle and can’t think of anything to write, I think of you and your amazing talent to come up with something from nothing. From fencers to spiders to pirates, you amaze me!

Deanna, Jacki, Josette and Meghan – Thanks for the support and good luck to you as you move forward on your novels. Can’t wait to see what you do next.

My husband – I’m back! Thanks for understanding and I hope you got used to it because year four has been an amazing transformation for me. There is more to come!

My beautiful daughter Savannah – I am so happy to have had the chance to write with you this year! You are so talented and I have no doubt that soon we will all be seeing your works sitting on the shelves at Barnes and Noble. I could not be more proud! You move me baby!

Finally, to all of you who have shared this experience with me this month, I thank you! It has been a wonderful ride and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish as writers in the new year!
