I did it. This afternoon, I wrote my 50,197th word of the novel, finishing the story as well. The goal was to write a 50,000 word novel in under 30 days. So it took me 22 days. Not bad, if I do say so myself. And the story is a story, unedited of course, first draft only, but it's done. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. I had no idea, when I began, how the story would end, so it was as much of a surprise to me as it would be to any reader. It's okay. Now, as to whether I'll actually edit it and send it somewhere, I need a couple of weeks to think about that. Then at the beginning of December, maybe, I'll reread it and see if it has any potential.
