Thanks all.

I just wanted to add...

Thank you so much to all the novel racers and to Kate for accepting my request to join in the first place. This group really helped motivate me to finish my novel. Seeing other people finish their novels and reading about the various struggles and success stories really spurred me on. There's so much energy and enthusiasm in this group and, without it, it would be so easy to just add a couple of words to the novel here, a couple there and drag the writing process out for years.

Knowing that people were reading my blog and cheering me on made me feel accountable (in a good way) and kept me writing, even when I suffered an attack of the wobble/wibbles.

So thank you - all of you.

Now I'm going to have a little break from this novel before I get down to some serious editing (which I'll be blogging and moaning about no doubt!)

How brilliant to have actually written and finished a novel. You must be so proud. No one can ever take that away from you. Now I want to cry!
Also, you have a full word count bar - I have a thing about them!

Enjoy basking in glory and don't lift a pen for a month.
