Even though the evil word count verifier stole over a thousand words from me, I still won! Finally! It only took five long years of trying. Praise God and Hallelujah!
My wordcount clocks me at 51,325 before NaNo verifier finally, begrudgingly agreed to bestow upon me the magical purple bar.
The NaNo WonderSaga is not finished. But it's way farther than it's ever been. We've got adventure, we've got death, we've got budding young love. We've got kinky sex, Swazi space kings, vampires, immortals, telepaths, shape shifters, haunted castles, mountains, a vast river, and one wee little sea - and we've got it all on a spaceship!
Ta-freaking-da! I am a novelist.
