I DID IT!!!!!!
The last day was a serious push for me - more words of fiction than I'd ever written in a single day before - and to be completely honest, if it weren't for my Kickstarter backer's support, I don't know if I'd have finished. If it weren't for my roommates' support, I am 100% sure I wouldn't have finished. That last day, Saturday, was a cleaning day. Not just any weekly cleaning day, a post-Thanksgiving cleaning day. Yet they very kindly let me skip out early so I could get to writing.
Another victory, not quite as great but just as important to me:
I wrote every day during the month of November. Even during my bad depression days, even during my super busy days. Every! Day!
I am super proud of myself, y'all.
Thank you for all of your support, and I'll definitely be keeping y'all posted as my novel progresses from fifty thousand hastily-written words into a published book. Stay tuned!
