Our Protagonize NaNoWriMo 2010 finalists…
Although I was kindly reminded by Eloosive this morning, I had already planned on posting our NaNoWriMo 2010 contestÂ “finalists” today. :)
The three winners will be announced on Monday, but I figured I’d give you all the weekend to simmer… err.. review all of the fine entries we had this year, and to read throughÂ as many ofÂ ourÂ NaNoWriMoÂ Daily Picks for 2010 as you can get your hands on. We ended up with a total of 47Â novels submitted and over 730,000 words published inÂ our contest this year,Â and I’mÂ hoping to see over 100 novels next year when we do this allÂ over again.
Of course, not everyone had a chance to be a Daily Pick, and we ended up with 28 finalists this year, 13 ofÂ whomÂ managed to post over 20,000 words to the site. That’s awesome, and I’m proud to see so many ProtagonizeÂ members putting in so much time and effort this year, as well as taking the time to share it with the rest of our authors.
I’m sureÂ many of you wrote more, and as I mentioned in the contest details, I would really like to choose winners who “won” NaNo or at least reasonably close to completing this year. If you’re in our list of finalists and you don’t feel you really gave it your all this year (let’s say you quit in the first week or two), feel free to let me know and I’ll take you out of the running. Nothing beats honest competition, right? :)
Good luck to all of you, and check back on Monday to see who won.
And without further ado… our finalists!
