Sorry I haven't posted in a half a million years, but here I am now!
So, I won NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month, happens every November) in 2012. I won that with my novel--The Pirate Sisters! I got about halfway with I think about 24,000 words, and then I stopped. Throughout the year I have been have writing it, so I got up to about 32,000.
I edited the thing in two days (so it wasn't perfect at all) and on June 30, the deadline, Mom and I got on to publish it with the little deal. Well....you see, I stayed up till ten o'clock (super late, I know ;) Eastern time...the thing I learned from this is don't procrastinate and get it published at least two days before the deadline. I suppose the deadline ended somewhere in Asia instead of my time, which means no free book sadly.
But it was a great experience! :) And I learned that you can publish on Createspace, you just have to pay to get your book in print. So I will edit the Pirate Sisters better and the publish. So I had my little adventure.
July I had no idea what I did, and ditto with August. We went camping and my grandpa retired, we saw monster trucks, I went to the Lion King on Broadway and went to the Melting Pot! :D I was spoiled, but more on that later.
