Yes, I did.
At 11:56 pm I validated that I have written over 50k words. I had hoped to reach the goal before Thanksgiving. And I did. Barely. But I did.
It has been challenging and fun. For a while I thought I wouldn't make it. But I did.
Now back to working on the story! I reached 50k, but as I suspected, the plot is not complete. There are words to go to actually finish the novel and I will keep on writing to the end. Then return to the other novel while this one rests.
And my winner t-shirt arrived today. How perfect was that timing?!
