Wait for it....

It's Official!!  I am a NaNoWriMo 2010 Winner!!  YAY!

After much frustration, more stress, lots of scenes dancing in my head, and many more steamy scenes with my main man, LEO (swoon!!), I have reached my goal of at least 50,000 words by the end of NaNoWriMo!

So here's my cheezy acceptance speech:  (Ready?)

I would like to thank the many writer friends who have encouraged me every step of the way from my Twitter Followers, Facebook Friends, and Blog Followers. Also, to my students, who asked every morning what my word count was!! To my hubbs, who loves me enough to give me time to write!

And last but not least, I couldn't forget to thank my fingers who never quit typing even when it would have been VERY easy to do!

My November rocked hard core! So, now I am giving it a rest until January when I can go back and cut most of the words I've written to make this bad boy shine!

Meanwhile, I will be revising and editing LOVESTRUCK to prepare for querying!

Stay tuned...I plan on posting some of this accomplishment on my blog and also hosting a blogfest. A THANK GOD NOVEMBER IS OVER blogfest! So tell everyone you know to keep coming back for the details!


  1. Yay! Congrats!

    I made it at the buzzer. 8 minutes to spare. lol.

    I'm going back in to fix some plot stuff before I hide it in the proverbial drawer.

  2. Congratulations. That is fantastic.
