51,567 words

yes, I won NaNoWriMo! Thank you to all of you who were so wonderfully supportive.

What it means that I won: no money, no glory. I get on a list. 21,719 other people also won. (Out of 119,000-some around the world who signed up.) In this, NaNoWriMo's tenth year, a larger percentage of people finished than ever before (except for the early two years with like 10 or 25 people, a statistically not so good sample).

What it really means: got my 50,000+ words posted before midnight November 30th.
had to think up a title (came up with Who Came and Who Went)
got wonderful writing practice through the month of November and can't wait to get back to it
met some people in a cafe to do writing on Saturdays and we are going to keep meeting

So, just wanted to say it. More later.
