NANOWRIMO WINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Winner Icon
Dear Family and friends: I have done it!!!!!! I completed my goal and I couldn't be prouder! I know I still have a long road in front of me. I finished with over 51,000 words, but my story requires way more than that. However, for the purposes of NaNoWriMo I have finished my task. It will be a while before I can be ready for anyone to read my book though, all I can say for now is that it's called: "Orange Blossoms for Victoria" and is set in beautiful Puerto Rico and Cuba. 
Thanks, thanks, thanks to everyone for your support and faith in me. I have been sleeping an average of three hours per night this last week, and it's 3 in the morning right now. I am exhausted, but so happy I don't know if I will be able to sleep. 
YEAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Oh my goodness, congratulations! I'm so excited and happy for you, and your book sounds TERRIFIC. Wow! (and even though I totally gave up on writing my book, I still feel a bit of a proud glow for my tiny role in yours. Awesome!)

  3. Wow Yamile!!! Eres una monedita de oro. Haces de todo, no sabia que hasta escribes. Eres un buen ejemplo para todas las mamas que de repente nos queremos dar por vencidas.

    Mil felicidades y cuando este listo tu libro me encantara leerlo. Buena suerte con todo.
