Not going to make it... ;__;

According to the NaNo Website I have less than two hours to finish... ;__;

Because it's counting time according to local time. And yes, that's what it says in the NaNo rules: you have to be done by midnight local time.

*sigh*

If my taxes hadn't gotten in the way at the last moment... But the IRS more or less gave me a final deadline: today. Or pay an amount of taxes that *they* would determine. >.> So I was working on my taxes until 3 am this morning. Then dropped dead. By the time I managed to get back to writing, it was more or less evening.

*another sigh*

And I *so* wanted to finish this time... ;__;

31515 words. There's no way I can write another 18485 words in the next 1 hour and 44 minutes left...

And I don't want to cheat... really I don't...

Oh well... ;__;

EDIT: 33501 words at the last second...

Maybe next year...

I think I'll just go over into that corner and huddle there, feeling very, very unhappy and sorry for myself.

So sorry to hear that you're upset. But ... You managed 33.5k. There are some people that started out with a bang and fizzled at 10k or less. You did good. Be proud of what you did. Not upset because of what you didn't do.

Next year you'll do it.

Thank you! *hugs*

Well, I'd had my heart set on finishing. At least *this* year. But I guess I just started too late... >.> Though I did get more written this month than in the last 10 years... ^___^ So maybe I should just look at *that* as an achievement.

Yes, I'll *definitely* make it next year! *HUGS*
