Well, it’s official! After managing a final 4,618 words between yesterday and today, I took Transitions to a rough completion and exceeded the 50,000 word requirement by 1,552. See my certificate: NaNoWriMo-2014-Winner-Certificate.

The writing is rough, and the ending in particular needs a lot of work, but the framework is there. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and one of the things I will be giving thanks for is this accomplishment. Thanks to the NaNoWriMo project for motivating me, and encouraging progress along the way. And starting tomorrow I will focus on holidays and family and let Transitions sit for a while, so I can come back to it with fresh, hopefully creative eyes. With a lot of work and a little luck I will be shopping for an agent in early spring.

Woo-hoo! I am one happy (and relieved) writer!
