I submitted a manuscript with 50,232 words at 11:05pm. Happy NaNoWriMo and good luck to any other participants out there finishing up tonight.” A grueling but inspiring contest for writers across the country, National Novel Writing Month was originally a motivational goal among a group of friends to write their novels in a month, but has since grown into a nonprofit organization and national competition. Anyone is invited to participate in National Novel Writing Month but only those who write 50,000 words in the month of November become winners. Complete with an array of Author prizes and rewards, the contest is a remarkable experience for any writer.
Having written the third book in her current series for the contest, Mrs. Girdner’s accomplishment in winning the contest is especially exciting for fans of The Labyrinth Wall, who are anxious to learn what happens next in the Obsidian Series. A fantasy novel, The Labyrinth Wall, became a #2 Amazon Best Seller in its category on January, 3rd 2014. In addition to a 4.6 Star rating and over 50 Amazon reader reviews, Mamta Madhavan of Readers' Favorite wrote, “There is something very mysterious about a labyrinth which gives this fantasy fiction a refreshing perspective. It is a book that all fantasy lovers will find addictive and thrilling.” Having won an array of awards already and stolen the hearts of fantasy readers, Emilyann’s NaNoWriMo win promises not to be the last inspirational news concerning this up and coming Orlando, Florida based Author.
