Though I didn't participate this year I cheered from the sidelines and did my best to keep my word count high in honor of those who were taking part. Every time I saw a tweet, Facebook, or Scribblerati update from one of my friends about their NaNoWriMo progress it encouraged me to pick up the pencil and do a bit of writing myself. You were my inspiration not only this week, but the entire month of November and I want to say thank you. Though it's nowhere near the 50k many of you pumped out I did manage close to 25k which gave my new work in progress a fabulous start.
Did you participate? If so I'd love to know what your final word count was and what you thought of the whole experience.
