    50,000!

    I just finished my 50K words for NaNoWriMo!

    This is huge for me. It's far and away the most I've ever written for one story and I'm really excited to see it all the way through.

    Next goal: finish the story.

    Next next goal: revise.

    Immediate goal: bed.

    Bed needs to come first on that list.

    CGs and good luck finishing and revising the book!

    Eh, I don't think so. Mostly because I don't feel like "won" anything and would feel disingenuous to me if I wore a short saying I did.

    Maybe I'll reward myself with a t-shirt, though. I've been eyeing this one for a while.
