NV Competition Ends & NaNoWriMo Begins


A huge congratulations to Leah Ashton for her winning NV entry Secrets & Speed Dating! Congratulations also to Lindsay, Carrie &a Heidi for their Top 4 entries!

When one door closes a window opens and that window is NaNoWriMo! Good luck to everyone whose fingers will be furiously typing a masterpiece. I’ll be watching your word meters soar!


P.S I’m going to be a sporadic blogger for another 10 days. Yes that’s a very specific 10 days and then I’ll be back to harass you all as much as I want ;)

Lacey Devlin said...

Wow Jen! With that kind of word count you definitely are a rockstar!

Joanne Coles said...

Yay for Leah, so glad that she won :-)

My Nano count is climbing, but definitely not soaring!

Leah said...

Thanks for the congrats, Lacey!

I am intrigued by your very specific 10 days of busyness - any hints of what exciting things you are doing? :)

Kerrin said...

mine isn't as good as Jen's but so far i have pounded out more than 1k a day, which is great for me! (just don't look at the count for Monday ;D)

Lacey Devlin said...

Congrats on your climbing word count Joanne! Slow and steady also wins the race :)

Lacey Devlin said...

Nothing exciting I'm afraid Leah! Just finishing off the last exams for a degree. Can you tell I'm counting down? The last time I did that was when I was a kid at Christmas and someone gave me one of those homemade chocolate countdown calendars ;)

Lacey Devlin said...

Woo hoo Kerrin! It sounds like your NaNo's on track!

Nas Dean said...

Good luck with your exams Lacey!
Did you take part in SYTYCW?

Lacey Devlin said...

Thanks Nas! I'm afraid I couldn't take part in SYTYCW but luckily I'll be able to catch up on it all next week :). You've got to love the internet.

Nas Dean said...

Yes its great. How we keep in touch via the net. I sent in my first page. Day 5 challenge is for the 1st chap and Synopsis by 15th December, feedback and reply by 31st January. Awesome!

Lacey Devlin said...

Congrats on sending in that first page Nas! I'm not sure if I'm going to enter the challenge yet. They're going to have a heck of a time getting all those entries read by the 31st!

I'm not doing Nano, but good luck to all who are! You have some very productive people visiting your blog, Lacey. I'd better get to work so I'm worthy of being in their company!!!!

Lacey Devlin said...

They're doing some amazing things with those word counts Wendy! I'm sure you're still being drowned by the emails of your success at the moment I'd hate to think what NaNo would have done to you on top of that lol!

Hope your NaNo is still going well! Good luck!
