After what feels like an epic journey… After 28 days of literary abandon… I wrote THE END at the end of my novel reaching thus 50051 words! I am overwhelmed with joy and pride. Branka Valcic, NaNoWriMo 2012 winner – yay!
PS Later I threw away all that I wrote during this NaNoWriMo journey, except the idea of a character that emerged in the last chapter. That idea flourished a beautiful novel The Lady of the Sea that I wrote over the next couple of years and published in 2015.
