Our Protagonize NaNoWriMo 2010 finalists…

Although I was kindly reminded by Eloosive this morning, I had already planned on posting our NaNoWriMo 2010 contest “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 through as many of our NaNoWriMo Daily Picks for 2010 as you can get your hands on. We ended up with a total of 47 novels submitted and over 730,000 words published in our contest this year, and I’m hoping to see over 100 novels next year when we do this all over again.

Of course, not everyone had a chance to be a Daily Pick, and we ended up with 28 finalists this year, 13 of whom managed to post over 20,000 words to the site. That’s awesome, and I’m proud to see so many Protagonize 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 sure 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!

    Yes, well, you may have planned on doing it, but you hadn’t said so!

    Anyway, that’s a rather impressive number of words for one month – and that’s only counting what people put up on Protag.

    Congrats to all!

    You may as well remove me from the running. Barely got past 16000 words and just gave up after that. Working at i41 for 4 days straight with about 3-4 hours of sleep each night completely screwed me over and robbed me of my ability to do anything remotely creative for about 2 weeks – I do not deal well with sleep deprivation.

  4. Rac7hel says:

    You can take me out, I gave up :P

  5. Delorfinde says:

    Oh, by the way … I actually got 193,000 words over November altogether, but didn’t post all of it because it needs so much editing and I just didn’t have time!

    So please remember that this is NOT my running total :)

    Do we get taken out of the context if we remove our novel from the site? (Since I was planning to, or at least delete most of it).

  6. Delorfinde says:

    I meant ‘contest’. Sorry about that.

    • Nick says:

      No, whoever was on the list at the end of the month (assuming you didn’t remove yourself from the contest) is in the running for the prizes.

  7. WhiteWine says:

    I am going crazy with anticipation! I have been refreshing my browser every 30 minutes to see if results have been posted!!
