I win!!!

I did it! I finished the first draft of my novel and crossed the 50,000 word finish line for NaNoWriMo!!! My family hasn't seen much of me for twenty-five days and I have to go ice my wrists, but my word count at this moment is 57,786. The second most popular question after "What's it about?" is "When are you submitting it?" and the answer to that is: probably not for quite a while.
See, this is just a first draft. And because it was done so quickly, it's a very ROUGH first draft. It needs quite a bit more added to it and a lot more detail in order to make it worthy of submission. So needless to say I'll be working on it for quite a while, but at least the bones are there and seriously? Almost 58,000 words is A LOT to type! So I did a mighty fine job my friends! :) Yes, I'm patting myself on the back and taking my atta-girls while I can. I'll keep you posted on the progress though and I'll definitely let you know when you can go out and buy it in the bookstores! And I'll even expect you, MS. SHERWIN WILLIAMS to buy one too! ;)
