I wrote a novel, and all I got was this crummy certificate…

It is kind of cute though ;-)

I’ll be revising “Vortex” and editing it, then releasing it for sale as an e-book.

I might even make $20. Who knows?

It’s been fun. Thanks for reading – especially all those “quiet” readers here in Dunedin who I’ve been tracking with my blog and feed counter. An audience is always appreciated – even a quiet, anonymous one!

Next I’ll now be posting my other NaNo novel, “EarthWitch”, which I wrote in 2005. I hope you enjoy reading it.

    I navigated away from the certificate page, and now I don’t know how to find it again. (I haven’t really tried…)

    Congrats on the win! Feels great, hey?

      Hi Emmie – If you can’t get the certificate again, go ahead and grab a copy of mine. It’ll be the same anyway :-) And congratulations!

    Wow! I’d say this is the best kind of crummy certificate one could get! Congratulations, Leanne!!! Yes, it would be nice if the prize could be measured in $$$$s.

      Hi Leta – Well, I wrote the novel mainly to get back into the “stream” of writing after a long, loooong time off…and also to get some stuff cleared out of my head which has been weighing on me for too long. Now it’s done, and over with, and I feel great – and have the certificate to prove it! Hehe.
      Somehow I suspect that J K Rowling needn’t worry about me just yet, though…

    Hi Leanne,

    I stumbled across your blog somehow last weekend, which led me to your book. I’ve enjoyed the read. Congrats on your accomplishment! Good luck on your future endeavors.

    Hi Dotty – Thanks so much for the feedback! If you’re interested, I’m posting my 2005 NaNo novel “EarthWitch” up for reading now, chapter by chapter. To be honest, I think it’s probably a better book than “Vortex” – it was at least *planned*, rather than a flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants experience!

    Did you write a NaNo as well? It’s been fun!
