100% of 50k

Deadline: 1-September-2011
New words: 3915
Total words: 50025
Accomplished in fiction: Kind of a lot. We … well … maybe I don’t want to give it away. Trust me, though, we took on the big bad and though we got whipped, we survived.
Accomplished in life: Not much. Some groceries, laundry, and cooking. I watered the beds after dinner, that was nice. But really, all I did today was march towards the 50k word goal. Woo!
Other: DONE! Sort of. I wrote “an” ending. An ending I like, even, though it’s brief and strange and self-consciously exploring itself (ew, gross.) But as noted yesterday, I’ve got to go through and change a few things before I’ll consider this first draft complete. So, Yay!
