[quote="pls"]>>sorry to hear you got sick

Thanks. Cancer and all its side effects is no fun. If you're over 40-50, go get a colonoscopy. Now.

what do you call a nanonovel ?

Any novel I wrote for Nanowrimo.

who published them ?

They're all self-published - Amazon, Apple, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and quite a few others I've lost track of.[/quote]

well you are still here
my brother in law went from pain in back and seeming healthy
to the hospice in a matter of months

okay
thought it might have meant a size of a novel

congratulations
at least you finished them and you published them yourself for others to read
self publishing is publishing
ever since gutenberg and ben franklin it has been a respected way
until the businesses tried to take it over and disparaged all SP as vanity press work
and in the last 40 years it has come back strong to be respected and viable
although there are still some big vanity presses taking advantage of people

Yes, I'm still here in spite of pain in my back and radiation treatments on my liver, spine, and mouth and the removal of about half of my colon, but I'm facing the inevitable - I'm in palliative care now and facing the inevitable in a year or two so I've signed up for hospice (in-home) and Meals-On-Wheels.

>>thought it might have meant a size of a novel

Most YA novels run up to about 60,000 words, so writing some of mine during nanowrimo worked perfectly. My other two are somewhat longer -- the post-apocalyptic one is about 72,000 words.

i hope to avoid the pain
maybe get hit by a meteor and just go suddenly

you apparently did more during nano or added to that mss after the month was up
some beat the 50k goal and others fall short but it is a good target to get started with
