Word Count: 50 740
Is it tacky to post my winner's badge here? You know, I don't think I care.
Well! There we go. That's one way to get a novel draft out. In terms of the draft, I'm really happy with where it's gone. It's a solid effort and there are lots and lots of things for me to work on, and several creative ways I can see adding to my word count. Since I'll be filling in gaps, I think Draft 1.2 will be a little easier to work on than the last 30 days of slog has been. And here we are, on one of the few super late nights I had to pull during the month.
It doesn't hurt that I'm really in love with this story. Yes, that is most definitely a good thing.
