Your God



That's right children. One minute before midnight on November 29th, 2010 I reached my goal of 50,000 words. And I'm still not quite done.

I've got to finish up the manuscript, then there's a massive amount of editing left to be done. Characters to flesh out, ideas to expand upon, etc. But bless it, I REACHED 50K!!

Thank everyone who stood by this month and just let me do my thing. Super thanks to anyone who listened to me rant and rave about this book and how frustrating it could be at times. Once again, if you want me to send this to you when editing is done, please let me know. Currently the list is as follows:

  • Jim M.
  • Anzer H.
  • Kathleen R.
  • Kamila G.
  • Matt S.
  • Anthony P.
  • Rachel P.
  • Janelle S.
  • Jessie S.
  • Beth D.
Again, if you are not on this list, let me know ASAP so I can make sure that I don't forget to send it to you.

Now if ya'll will excuse me, I'm gonna go die a little. I am one very tired author.

Currently the list of people who are in line to read this when I'm done is as follows: Anzer, Kathleen, Matt, Jim, and my dad. If I've left you out, just let me know in the comments.

For those of you who are in the know, that stands for National Novel Writing Month. And yes, I am participating.

My manuscript is called "Confessions of a Fast Food Waitress" and so far it has just broken the 13000 work mark. So much happy. It draws heavily from my own experiences working at a fast food restaurant but it's sort of a realistic fiction about a girl trying to make her way through life. If anyone has suggestions or something they thing would be cool to see, let me know.

This is also a busy time since I'm starting Tech Week for A Few Good Men, so it's a lot of late nights coming up. But on the plus side I've found an apartment to live in and hopefully we'll sign a lease this Saturday! VERY excited! In the meantime, there's a lot to do. Two annotated bibliographies, a rough draft of a paper, a final paper, two tests, the play, registration for spring semester, training for a 5K, signing the apartment, and NaNoWriMo.

Support and love is very much welcome. Call, facebook, comment, text...something. I miss home.
