I did it! I did it!!! I didn't think it was going to happen. For starters, I didn't start until the 11th of the month. Not good. Then the computer crashed. Also, not good. Then I was away for my computer for two days while we were in the mountains - and I was at a crucial point in my story!
But I got home Friday night and wrote for three hours straight and FINISHED!!! Well, the story itself has about another ten pages to go to be totally complete but I finished the 50,000 word word count that is required to be a winner. YEA, ME!!! I got a neat little certificate and some little badges to put here on the blog or on Facebook or whatever else it is that I do on the web that I want people to see this accomplishment.
I'm just so excited. Fifty-thousand words in essentially sixteen days! It's a wonder that I even sleep with so much to say in my mind! So even though this book will probably never get published and I still don't have an agent, I feel pretty darn proud of myself that I was able to do this.
