NaNoWriMo

I won NaNoWriMo!

I have written 53,563 words this month.

Despite being broken and sick the whole time.

I haven't managed to combine this with College or earning money, but that's as much due to the way I've been ill as anything else. It's hard to go into College when you're too exhausted and anxious to move.

I do wish I hadn't been quite so utterly introverted this month, since I've been neglecting some of my friends terribly - but again, that's been due to the way I've been ill :S I should be a little more sociable now my meds have kicked in.

I'm fairly sure my stats page isn't actually right, but you can see the progression fairly well, anyway.

The scary thing? These 53,563 words, or 72 pages of A4, represent about 40% of the story. I'm not quite at the level of DualKatanas and his 532,640 words, but I'll definitely have written well over 100,000 words by the time I finish. Huh.

Is anyone very, very bored? I need some beta readers. I want to start publishing this on Archive of Our Own a couple of chapters at a time, even before it's finished, since I know exactly how it's going to end (have already written the ending!). Do realise that you'd be committing to reading 72 pages of my dreadful rambling - or rather, Alix, my main character's dreadful rambling ;)
