I managed to hit 50,000 in a vain attempt to introduce Remington. Fifty thousandth word: "an". (and my first word was "it") I AM SO BORING.
Anyway, I'm not technically done with the story and I won't be for a little while longer, but at least I can finish it with a bit more leisure since I qualify for the publishing thing now. :> It's only slightly cheating. (And people do it anyway.)
I'm going to go write moar now and see how many words I can gather before midnight. (this makes me very, very nervous though because I don't want to hit 'verify' yet but what if I miss it somehow?)
