You’re seeing that right. I’ve never won. I’ve never seen beyond the pearly gate. Now I have. It’s marvelous. My final word count, thanks to some trite dialogue when I hit 49,999 and couldn’t think of what to write, is 50,086 words. I will slash this manuscript like nothing else, add a great deal, and break some scenes so they can grow in the right locations, but the foundation is done. I’ve laid out the manure and now the fields of prosperity can ripen!
In 25 days, I’ve beaten NaNoWriMo. It only took me three failed attempts.
Good luck on your word counts out there! I hope they’re going well and you’re doing awesome things, no matter where you’re at. Remember, I failed three times. I’m going to bed now.
