I don’t know if there’s ever a “normal” in this country, but the firing has ceased and so has NaNoWriMo. It was my first attempt and I managed 35,044 words.
I didn’t “win”, but I wrote every day and I now have the first draft of a novel I can work with.
In addition, I met some lovely people in Jerusalem who were also doing NaNo.
So I enjoyed the experience and, whatever they say, I feel I’ve won!

Well done Miriam. I look forward to reading the novel.
Thanks, David. It will require a lot of editing before anyone can read it.
kol hakavod that you wrote over 35,00 words – I haven’t even got the guts to start a book
I’m sure you could write one. It’s just a matter of priorities.
Over 35,000 words, that’s amazing, well done! I look forward to reading it, just the title and genre have got me interested. Well, that and having read some of your short stories..!
Looking forward to reading yours, too.
You may not be able to put the NaNoWriMo win badge on display, but this is a big win, indeed. You’ve got a novel started and been able to make new connections. Sounds like a win to me. Good luck as you continue working on the novel 🙂
Thank you 🙂
I love your graphic of your steady progress. Looks like a win to me! And I couldn’t help but notice the halo. You’re supporting the arts and that’s important too.
Thanks and well done on your achievement!
I’ve got a good start on my novel. I’ve been distracted lately though (with drawing pictures).
Like the chart on your blog? Looks complicated!
