We had a record amount of participants attempt NaNoWriMo this year.  To celebrate a successful month of writing and attempting to write more than we normally do, we had a small award ceremony.  Here are the pictures of the people who wrote and supported those of us who wrote a lot....
Three of us completed our entire goal:  Me, Kotten Kandy and Amy
I wrote 60 poems and the other two wrote over 50,000 words!
Amy got the awards and passed them out - 
it was her idea!  Yeah, Amy!
These two were cute little bits of inspiration... but they didn't write.
I just loved this picture of Apple Pie and Jelly Bean
Lollipop was our cheerleader throughout the month of writing!
Marmalade actually wrote 1000 words - not too shabby for a 9 year old.
Nuts also wrote a bit.
And Juice wrote 13 pages of his story on an old fashioned typewriter.
It was fun to listen to the sounds of the machine as we wrote a few times....
Scott started a fairy tale story.  He was really excited.
But life got busy and he didn't finish.
He'll finish someday.  Glad he had fun with us writing!
Key Lime Pie made a great effort.  Her goal was to write daily.
She didn't quite make it, but she did write a lot!
Chris wrote ONE poem.  And he only wrote it so he could have
some of the NaNoWriMo kick off treats.  It made us all laugh!  He's great!
We all teased Hammond that he was writing a romance novel...
Actually he wrote quite a bit of his Sci-Fi novel.
Mark nearly made the 50K goal writing his memoirs.
He got 40K+!
I can't wait to read about his life!
Kotten Kandy wrote the most words out of EVERYBODY - over 50K!
She's not done with her novel.  She's only about half way done.  She's still writing.
And she loves it!  I am soooo excited to read her novel!
I think her and Amy are the true novelists in the group!
I didn't get pictures of Amy and I getting our "awards."
But we did it!  I'm excited to read her novel too...
My award was for the "Best Non-Novel!"
I'll share an excerpt from Kotten Kandy's book and my poetry tomorrow... or the next day.  It's late.  And I need to get to bed.


  1. That is awesome! Amy is such a fabulous friend :) Love you all <3

  2. You guys are committed all right! Sticking with it like you have would be a challenge. But if you don't try, you'll never get it done, so way to go...

  3. Very inspiring. Tell my wonderful nieces how proud I am of them. I am anxious to read the content!
