I Will NaNoWriMo No-Mo



Well mission accomplished ladies, and gentlemen! Kinda. The novel is nowhere near finished, and is an absolute train-wreck of a narrative…but I reached 50,000 words, so technically I have won NaNoWriMo. 

My work in progress, named: Delusions of Grandeur, follows the daily life, thoughts, and ravings, of an average middle-aged man, who is seeking something more in a world he truly doesn’t understand. The novel is a dark comedy which will hopefully taunt, and tease the reader…but also serves as a social critique of many pressing issues, mainly the treatment of mental health, and the desire to fit in to the confines laid out in front of us…

I hope you are intrigued! I will be back at it tomorrow, and editing away until it is done! This month was stressful…but it has forced me to put pen to paper – well, you know, fingers to keyboard. And now I have the bare bones of something I hope will be great. 

Thank you for your sustained support my friends, it is more than appreciated!

Winner Certificate

  1. Way to go John! I’ll totally read it when you get it done. You got to to 50,000 thousand words and got a story rolling, that’s diffidently cause for a “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” I actually had something similar happen to me. I was going to trying to write a novel in a couple months to submit to a book contest, and my goal was 50,000 words. Of course I didn’t get it done in time, but the story has gotten way bigger (and I think better.) I’m at 60,000 or 70,000 thousand and I’m hardly a quarter into the story!

  2. Oh I AM intrigued 🙂 That’s quite a feat to pull off in one month. A huge congratulation to you John. You stepped up to the challenge and never backed down. Besides having a book, this exercise speaks volumes about your character. Now go out and conquer the rest of the world young man ;P
