      Great 'meeting' you through this experience!

  5. Wow Girlfriend, you've been a busy bee! Good for you on NaNo; I felt successful getting 4K words; next time I'll be prepared for the nightmare. It was nice to meet you, and I'm following your blog to keep up with you. Much success Aria!

    1. Thanks, Donna! I've been so focused on what I still have to do – it's nice to take a moment to remember what I've already done. I think NaNo's "Camp" programs now let you set your own word count goals – maybe that'll be less of a nightmare for you? :-)

      It's been great getting to 'meet' you as well, and I'm flattered that you'll be following my blog. I'm looking forward to hearing how that contest goes for you, and continuing to read the posts from your new challenge!!
