As you can see if you look to the Northeast of the page (that shows my world orientation bias) I passed the 50,000 word mark a little while after we finished the turkey today. Yes, we ate turkey, but just a little. Sorry to any vegetarians we have offended. But I did finish. If you look on my facebook page which has a graph of how I did, you'll see that I almost stopped dead around the last of last week but I got my motivation back and pushed real hard through the end of the week and I'm very satisfied. The novel is admittedly not that great, it's pacing is terribly slow because I got wordy on purpose, but I feel it is a lot better than I had expected it to be. Some of the characters actually gained some death and the plot had some deeper meanings behind it. I don't know if I'll ever finish it off, but I definitely learned a lot and I got back into the writing groove, which was the real goal.

We'll post about Thanksgiving and some other recent stuff soon, but, for now, I wanted to brag. I won (which means I finished, there's no other way of winning.


  1. Did you mean "gained some depth"?

    Just making sure you aren't writing another vampire novel. There's a lot of death gained in those.

  2. I'm glad you ate some turkey :) When do you two get back? I made you a pie! I hope you like pumpkins....
