Moment of Heart-Stopping Terror
I just went over to NaNoWriMo to validate my 50,000 words. Popped the name of my last text file into the browser window and waited patiently.
Then the verified word count came up - 45,000 and change. No, that can't be right! I wrote 50,000 words. Where were those last 5,000 words hiding? I don't want to write 5,000 words in one night - I'm all written out at the moment.
Then I realised I validated the wrong file - I validated the morning file, not the afternoon file from my last day. Duh. One validation later and I'm now an official winner of NaNoWriMo, which is really a nice way of saying I'm a burnt out writer with a pile of editing to keep me company in the long nights of December.
Good luck to everyone else who is sprinting to the finish, especially Claire, who has made up an amazing amount of ground after being sick recently.
