I'm a winner! And before Thanksgiving at that! I'm currently at 50,055 words! The validator adds two words though, which is amusing. My poor husband loses over 300 words with the validator. :(
I have the winner's certificate with my name and novel title proudly magnitized onto our fridge right now. My husband's will join it shortly.
I'm still not done with my novel yet so I'm off to finish it. I didn't finish last year's after I won because I couldn't bear to kill off my MC. This year though, I have an ending.
