the winners together

Having abandoned her writing part way through the month Creature decided in the final days of NaNo that she would really *really* like a winners t-shirt and so set herself a mammoth task of over 4,000 words a day to finish .... and she made it, with a grand total of just over the 50,000. I had to make her 20,000, 30,000 and 40,000 word cakes in quick succession over a few days (well, the 40,000 cake was a lemon meringue pie). Here we are with our 'winner's' cake yesterday.
And here we are verifying our novels on the NaNoWriMo site and collecting certificates and all that jazz (that's my sister Claire, who I don't think has featured on the blog before):

Well done to all the other people who took part, whether or not you got to 50,000 it is still a great challenge and we are already looking forward and planning for next year. And here is the little winners badge that I can put proudly in my sidebar for all to see:


  1. Well done both of you - I wish I'd thought of getting someone to make me motivational cakes :)

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Yay for Cake! Take care

  3. WooHoo! Glad there was cake! Cake and Tshirts make it all worth it. I still can't think of 50,000 words!


Thanks for stopping by. Thoughts, opinions and suggestions (reading or otherwise) always most welcome.
