Yay! I won NaNoWriMo

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.01.2010

I came in at 50,080 words as of around 8:30 pm on November 30th!

I was working on my next manuscript for Zondervan, which is about a girl who is ex-Japanese mafia—she’s niece to the San Francisco yakuza boss and she goes to jail for a crime she didn’t commit. She finds Jesus in jail and now she’s out of prison, trying to walk the straight and narrow (and somehow find a job) with her uncle wanting her to work for him again and everybody else distrusting her because of her past. Cool, huh? It’ll be out next year in October. I don’t have a title yet, but I’ll post here when I do!

Anyone else did NaNoWriMo? How'd you do? Tell me about your story!


  1. Congratulations! That is awesome and your story sounds wonderful!

    I did NaNo, but didn't win. I did make it up to 30,000 words, which is excellent for me, a full time working gal. I'm happy with the progress.

  2. I tried again this year too... Made it it 28k. Further than last year at least. (I've decided that November is the WORST time of the year for NaNoWriMo, btw. Too much else going on!!)

  3. Congratulations!! I really like the book idea, can't wait for the new book to come out. :)

  4. I love the new story line. It is interesting and different. Congratulations!

  5. The story sounds very interesting!

    Congrats on winning NaNo! It DEFINITELY isn't easy. I did it with 50,506. The sad thing is I hate most of what I wrote!

  6. Congratulations Camy! That's great and I can't wait to read your new book- I'm already intrigued!

  7. So do you actually win something or just the satisfaction of having written that much?

  8. Congratulations Camy! Your story sounds very interesting. I'm looking forward to reading it next year!

  9. I participated in NaNoWriMo this year, but I only made it to about 13,000 words. I just didn't know enough about my novel, and apparently I'm not a very good pantser.

    But I am very proud that I did that much in such a short amount of time. It's more than I've ever written on just one story. I'm going to work on an outline for next year, and next year, I will win.
