and I cannot wait!! I am already 10k over my 1st draft and I am not near the end. I knew 60k was too short for a romance and now it looks like I am going to make it to 80k! Wahoo!

Yeah, Baby! You can do it. I'm jealous, though, because I can never get a novel over 65K let alone 70K. Well done!

Way to go. That's a great number. And, I found the last 10,000 words of my novel the easiest to write, too.

Congrats, Patrick Bateman!

Btw, do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humour. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. Hey Paul!

III - My pic is actually from the movie Equilibrium and Christian Bale plays John Preston. Coincidentally, Chris "plays" one of my characters in my book- guess what his last name is? This was before I even knew the movie existed. Weird stuff.

I only got to write for an hour last night, but I still wrote 900 words. Yay! :D
Thanks all, and congrats to the others that are hitting a milestone too!
