End of NaNo, but just a beginning of a story

NaNoWriMo is now over and done with, but I am still writing and feeling better and better about what I am writing every day.

I did not make it to the 50,000 cut off point to be considered a winner, but I did get Part I done and even though it needs revision that is still indeed an accomplishment. Congratulations to everyone who cranked out 50K or more. Some of the word totals are quite amazing. Having now experienced the joy and frustration of taking on a challenge like this, I can vouch for the value of attempting NaNO. MY story did not start to gel until the last 5 or 10 thousand words. This final section is pretty neat and it is an amazing feeling to know that I could not have gotten there without first having slogged through the first part. What an enlightenment. Wow!
