As Howard Dean once said: YEARGH!
I am officially, as of right now, at 50,120 words. By NaNoWriMo rules, I am a winner!
Of course, there's still...oh...about 30% of the book left. Plus editing. Sadly, I have many more weeks of writing yet before I can even declare the narrative complete.
Still, producing 153 pages of prose in under a month is nothing I'm going to scoff at. I'm proud of what I've accomplished so far. Now, I have to finish the work I've started--or this doesn't mean much.
