I really enjoyed doing NaNoWriMo, but I didn't reach my goal in time.:):):) When I start writing I can't seem to stop, so when I reached my goal, the book wouldn't have been done anyway!:):):) It was a really fun thing to do though, and I know I'll do it next year!:):):) Oh, and if you ever want to see what my book is about or what number of words I reached, and stuff like that, you can check out the website and go on my account page!:):):) My name was Greeneyes 3.:):):) Oh, and Paige, I would love if you would check it out, because my profile picture is of my Rocky boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):):):):):)

It was all right. I didn't make it. 73,000 words, and a lot of it was binary. *is ashamed*

Probably won't finish the story.

So you're feeling ashamed because you wrote 73,000 words? In ONE MONTH? That's not ashaming (from my point of view, at least), that's amazing! Wow.

No, I was ashamed because A) I cheated and B) It wasn't nearly what I could have done if I had pushed myself.

How do you get to the NaNoWriMo website? I didn't know it had one! I might do it next year.

I did Nano this year and I got 52,000 words. I lost 3 1/2 pounds because I would write for ridiculous amounts of time and forget to eat.

I don't think that I could get that many words.  I'm a sloooooooow writer....  :):):)  And I never forget about food....  :):):):):):)  Actually, when I was really sick for a few years, I barely ate and I was about fifty pounds lighter than I should have been.  Once they put me on the right meds, I gained forty pounds in one year. :) And I'm still underweight.... :):)

Cry You were really sick? How come? What did you have?

I have a disease called Crohn's.  Do you know what canker sores are?  If you don't they're like open sores in your mouth, that sting like crazy when anything touches them.  I had something like large versions of them in my stomach and all the other body parts that have to do with digestion.  At that time, I hadn't been diagnosed, so I was suffering from weight lose, lack of energy, canker sores, inflamed stomach, constant migraines and headaches, and a bunch of other stuff.  I had to have an endoscopy done at the hospital, and then they figured out I have Crohn's.  They put me on Prednisone, which immediately healed me, and now I'm on 19 pills a day, plus eight more on Saturday.  Really, though, I don't mind taking all the pills, because I know it will keep me healthy. :) How come? Umm, my dad sort of has it, and my Grandma has colitis, which is similar.  It was really amazing, because right when I was the sickest I've ever been, I had my first week of camp, and my camp counselor happened to have Celiacs (I have no idea how to spell it!), which is similar, too!  It was really encouraging to know somebuggy who had the same stuff happen to them!  God has really blessed me in getting to know Kat.  Unfortunately, she's not healthy now.  She's been in and out of the hospital frequently, lately, causing her not to be able to be a counselor at camp!! :(:(:(:(

Ohhhhh. I'm sorry for you, but at least you are diagnosed now.

Tell Kat I hope she gets better soon.
