Bloody Done!

Well, it's been the most trying NaNo yet, but I bloody well made it! The novel itself stopped at 49,779 words (just to spite me, I'm sure), but I wrote 300 words of randomness and crossed the finish line at 4:35 in the morning! What sleep?!

I'm not sure, but I think this may be one of the best things I've ever written. Not that it doesn't need massive amounts of work; I'm just fairly happy with what I've written as raw material.

For the curious or the masochistic, I will be sending out a slightly cleaned up version of this very rough draft as soon as I finish slightly cleaning it up. Those who want to see a copy can comment here, email me, mug me, or otherwise contact me and I will email it to them.

Well, there's this new fad called sleep, and I think I'm going to try it, just a bit. Slainte!

*waves hand frantically in the air*

I want one I want one!

And I'll speak for Rachel E and say she wants one too.

We will be waiting with baited breath!!

I'd like it too!

Now shut up for a few hours. I'm not done.

[joins in the wild hand-waving] Me too, if you please!

I've got a thousand words left. The question is.. should I spend my afternoon finishing my crappy novel, or working on my church history essay? Hmm. Maybe I can incorporate the essay INTO the novel and finish it that way.

All right, peoples, so shall it be. And Robin, that WOULD be the classic NaNo Homework Dodge, a tried and true cheap tactic of the November novelist.
