NaNoWriMo 2011: Detective story part 5

For the 3rd time in a row I won NaNoWriMo. The first time in 2009 I only had 20 days to win and I managed to get Demon Soul partially written and hitting the non-return point. 
In 2010, I manage to write the first part of "Vampire heart" and I know I still have a lot of work to do about it.
And this year, I managed to reach the 50000 words one day in advance by writing 5363 words on November 29th on my first detective story.
As usual however the story is not yet finished and I need about 20000 or 30000 more words to hit the ending but I reached the non-return point once again. And that is what NaNo is all about for me.
Harajuku Kiss
NaNoWriMo teaches you to finish stuff, to get into your novel so deeply that when you actually reach your 50000 words it is a lot easier to get the last couple of 10000 words needed than to give it up. NaNoWriMo teaches you habit, it teaches you to write everyday even if you don't want to write, if you have no ideas, if you are writing rubbish or if you are to old/smart/stupid/poor/rich/busy/French/analytical/perfectionist... to write. Because you know that you gotta do it anyway. NaNo allowed me to realized my childhood dream and to be somewhat of a writer. So here is the part of "Harajuku Kiss" (Yes the detective story does have a title now :) ) that crossed to 50000 finish line.
And don't worry, you'll have more coming in December.
