The Finish Line

50,909 words

I could have validated a little earlier, I suppose, perhaps being second instead of third of my writing buddies to make it to goal. But I had my heroine in a tight spot (cue Ulysses Everett McGill: "Damn! We're in a tight spot!") and couldn't stop writing until she got safely out of it.

Now I can breathe. And so can she—for a little while.

Of those 50,909 words, approximately 30,600 are part of the current draft. It's something to start with, now that I can cut the scrapped parts into a separate document and delete stupid sentences instead of just striking them out. Won't that be a relief.

Today is supposed to be Tasty Tuesday. Let's see... if I want to celebrate, what should I make? Maybe the guiltless, faultless family chocolate chip cookie recipe. Oh, and Farmer's City Wife wants fudge recipes, so if you have one, do go share it with her.


  1. Is there really such a thing as a "guiltless" chocolate chip cookie recipe? :)

    Congratulations again on winning!! Continued good luck now on revisions & tidying up.

  2. Yaaaay!

    Make yourself some latkes, or donuts, or best of all both. Recipes here.

  3. Haha. Well, George, it has whole wheat in it. I perhaps tend to give that more nutritional credit than it deserves. :)
