I surpassed my 27,000 April word goal with a grand total of 27,032 (admittedly not very skillfully written) words and went on to ecstatically print out my finished 115-page-long first draft yesterday morning.
In other words, HALLELUJAH. I can get onto phase two now!
(and begin planning my November novel, ha.)
(Speaking of learning to cook, I'm still very bad at it, but that's okay. Maybe I'll post some of the things I've learned up someday-- I figured out how to make baking powder, sautee stuff, even get the onions so they don't make you cry. Hint: don't watch Doctor Who while chopping those things.)
Also, I think that's it.
I can't wait to begin editing my truly atrocious novel! No, really. I' going to give it a few days to sit, but then I'm taking a red pen to it. Hahahaha.
I can't wait.
