I made it as a 2010 NaNoWriMo Winner!

I did it! And I am so excited!
My life’s work is dedicated to helping authors through the stages of getting their book, their “babies”, “masterpieces” aka manuscripts from finished manuscript as a raw Word Document through the design, layout, typesetting, and finally, to print-ready files, and this month I took a leap of faith to the other side of the fence.
I wrote my first book.
And as the Annual NaNoWriMo challenge requires, I had to write my book in 30 days and it had to be at least 50,000 words.
I finished today at approximately 4:30 pm, ET and have officially been declared a “WINNER” and I am basking in that honor as I type this.

My book is titled, “Apparently Sarah” and is in the Young Adult fiction readers category but would be great for ages 11 to 99+.

I read a lot and lately much of it has been Young Adult Fiction – the books are easy reading, much of it we can all relate to in some fashion, and they’re often filled with life lessons that are not preachy.

I am writing this post also to tip my hat to every author with whom I have had the pleasure of working with over the years — writing is a daunting process, particularly in the wee hours of the morning when you’re looking at a deadline and your brain or fingers just won’t co-operate! I have a great respect for you all!

The next step will be to have my book thoroughly edited and then for me to decide if I want to publish it publicly to the open market or for now, just have it be my personal “winning story” for the 2010 NaNoWriMo challenge.

Happy Reading and Writing!
Sue, book design and typesetting
