Last week I didn't think I would make it - but I even left room to spare:

Zokutou word meter
50,876 / 50,000

And this is what they present to you when you finish:

You've Won!

Dear Novelist, 
You did it. 
Despite everything else going on in your busy life, you managed to pull off the creative coup of writing a 50,000-word novel in just one month. 
When the going got tough, you got typing, and in four weeks, you built vast worlds and set them in motion. You created characters; quirky, interesting, passionate souls with lives and loves and ambitions as great as yours. You stuck it out through the notoriously difficult middle stretch, and pressed onward as 80% of your fellow writers dropped out around you. 

And now look at you: A NaNoWriMo winner. And the owner of a brand-new, potential-filled manuscript. It's an amazing accomplishment, and we're proud to have had you writing with

I am relieved to be done with it.  This was an intense project.  And yes, I will find some way to share it.  Maybe I will add it to The Source Chronicles.

It should probably be noted that today is the 7th anniversary of my accident.  Seven years ago today every aspect of my being was changed.  Wow.  I would post more on this, but I just spent a month reliving much of it already. 

Lastly, before I go to work:

Happy Birthday [profile] unicornpearlz!

Malcolm, you rock. I'm very happy to have been a small part of this. When you sell this, I expect an acknowledgment, and a mention on Oprah when she has you on her show. ;-)

See you at practice.
