Tammy and I have both won NaNoWriMo for our tenth years.
I spent the month writing a third book in a trilogy that I started in 2014. I am not finished, but I expect to finish it in Camp NaNoWriMo 2018. My Selectric ribbon died 3/4 of the way down my last page for this year, and I didn’t have a spare, so I fed the page into my Underwood and finished it there.
Tammy only gave me the vaguest outline of what she was writing this year. I do hope that her gaggle of women on a bicycle tour made it to their destination…
Ten years. Man. I still remember our conversations back in 2008, when I mentioned Nano to Tammy for the first time, having read about it on macworld.com. They’d reviewed Scrivener, an application that was tailor-made for novel writing (and we now own: Tammy uses it to write her novels, and I use it to edit). Days before November started, and it was like we were each double-dog-daring the other to commit to it.
So glad we did.
