    Taking a cue from NaNoWriMo, I started writing a novel on July 1st, with the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel in one month.

    As of 1:00 p.m. today, I have officially written my first novel. Final word count: 58,429.

    Sword-and-sorcery epic...i.e.: "This has been done before."

    It'll probably never be published, but that won't stop me from trying.

    Hey, congrats! I can tell you from experience, it's not easy, so I commend you. I'm getting a novel published myself, so if you really want to, I might be able to help you. Congrats, and you'll have to let us read some. :D

    Congrats, Autobot X!:thumb 

    I'm hoping to someday write a novel myself. Though, for me it would take more than just one month to write one.:rolleyes:

    The best i could do was a short story just about 50 pages long. I just don't have the attention span or devotion for long works.
    short stories are my bread and butter.

    congrats and never stop amazing yourself with what you can do.

    Well I'm trying to finish upwards of 3 novels, AND get them all published. And as a buffer to not get screwed over with a story I value immensely, I am also working on a couple of short stories that I intend to have published first.

    I do congratulate you on your accomplishment, but is it grammar-checked? Is it even interesting? (I mean, do you find it interesting?)

    But anyway, it's my life goal to publish my stories, and reap the benefits, never to do a hard day's work thereafter.

    Nice! Good luck in getting it published! I myself am currently working with a pal of mine on an anthology of short stories.

    I wrote a novel a few years back and started writing another two simultaneously but I've since been rather distracted with other life issues. One of these days I'll get back to them, or just knock out a sequel to the first one since that's already planned out enough to stick the notes together and be a coherent story right away. Stuck my nose into getting the finished one published but it's not an easy thing to get into.

    Sad thing is you feel rather proud of yourself for having finished writing a novel and then get the internet for the first time and discover everyone else is a writer too.
