I officially completed my 50,003 word novel manuscript as part of National Novel Writing Month, exactly twenty-five hours and five minutes before the November 30th deadline. I'm tired, nursing a head cold, but total exhilarated. Sure this is only a rough draft. I can tell you right now, I was clamoring to find something to write about for the last 1,500 words. But I finished a story, beginning to end.
Special thanks to my wonderful family, who put up with another wild and crazy idea that kept me glued to the computer.
More reflections on this tomorrow. Right now I'm going to bed!
