You did it, writer.
Pitted against a merciless deadline and battling hordes of distractions—including the most tempting fall TV season that's been unleashed upon novelists in decades—you kept at it.
Now you've arrived at a place that very few NaNoWriMo participants ever see: The winner's circle. Overhead, the November sky is bursting with fireworks celebrating your victory, and the entire NaNoWriMo staff joins me in applauding your creative achievement.
You did something amazing this month, novelist. We couldn't be prouder.
Aw, how sweet. Thanks, Chris Batey. You brought a tear to me eye.
