Whooooooooohooooooooooooo!

NaNoWriMo 2006 Winner

So. That's one month of my life I'm not getting back :)

I am so, so glad that I managed to finish this thing. Not that the novel's finished; in fact I'm halfway through a scene, let alone worrying about the plot holes and the occasional italicised "TODO" here and there. But bugrit. I have written 50,000 words of fiction in a month, which is probably more than I've ever written in a five-year period up until now. That's quite cool, really.

I still can't believe that I managed to fit it in.

Anyway. I will post a more reflective entry tomorrow, or, in fact, later today. Or at some point when I've got some more sleep, whenever that is. The Cava I'm currently drinking may help with that (I've got proper Champagne in the fridge for when I can actually get together with someone else to celebrate...)

I'll leave you not with the usual Favourite Line of the Day, but with a short list of songs about famous Belgians performed by my protagonist's band during the course of the novel. juggzy take note, some of these may want lyrics at some point :)

Justine Henin-Hardenne (Who started it all...)
Hieronymus Bosch, Mosh Mosh Mosh!
Helmut Lotti, My Kind of Tottie
That Jean Bolland, He's Not From Holland
He's Neat, He's Elite, He's Rene Magritte

...Thank you, and goodnight. *bows*
