NaNoWriMo 2007 : I Did it! 50,069

Wow…didn’t think that this was going to happen at all. There was a week where I thought I wouldn’t catch up for falling behind.

This was a breakthrough for me. I have written some (albeit a lot of) small scripts for Technorama, then writing the Christmas Specials that we had for Friends in Tech (with help from others in the group, I don’t pretend to had written those all myself) that I am quite proud of. And now this, A novel. My english teacher would probably kill over if she knew.

Will I do this next year? Oh Yes! However my bets are on that I won’t wait till November to write another. Just the creative writing alone has really opened me up to some more ideas that I now have and I don’t want to wait a year to act on them.

Well, I still have some ground to cover to finish it, but I plan on podiobooking it early next year.

Thanks to NaNoWriMo, Darusha Wehm, J.C. Hutchins and all the support from my friends on twitter and writing buddies.

As Hannibal Smith said, “I love it when a plan comes together”.

Whoa…Something for you fellow Harry Potter fans out there…looks like we at least have the name of the book. No Dates or other information other than the Title.

I personally am looking forward to the next movie.

Name of final Harry Potter book announced –
NEW YORK (AP) — We now have a title for Book VII: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

Rowling’s U.S. publisher, Scholastic Inc., released a brief statement Thursday announcing the name of the world’s most anticipated children’s book, the finale to her phenomenally popular fantasy series.

Googling for Books

I see that Google now offers downloads of some out of copywrite book on its Book Search. I think that this is great and all but is this really better that Geutenberg project. The 2 PDFs that I download from Google were literal scans to PDF, pictures of the book itself. Not very flexible to put on a book Reader.
