Right down to the deadline (11/30), but I did my 50K words–maybe 30K of which are any good–for the National Novel Writing Month challenge. I even got a badge. The NaNoWriMo organization also offers badges for a couple dozen categories, like Pantser, or Planner (do you write by the seat of your pants or outline?), Caffeine Abuse, Word Sprinter (if you joined a NaNoWriMo get-together to write, which I did at Space Cowboy Books), and others. They don’t offer a badge for cheaters, which I earned because I started KillGirl long before the official start date.
It was fun, and I will do it again next year.
