CELEBRATE WHEN YOU REACH 50,000 WORDS whether your story is finished or not! You have accomplished what few can or will. Do a happy dance. Take a deep breath! Meet with family and friends, let them know you’re still alive. Whoop and holler – YOU ARE A NaNoWriMo WINNER! BUT…if your story isn’t finished DO NOT STOP WRITING!!! The goal of an author is to write. THE END.
