Just finished up! Total words 50,006! (The extra 6 were just showing off, Phil says.)
Thanks to every single person who cheered me on. You were all literally the only reason I finished. I'd have given up the whole thing weeks ago as a stupid idea, but I couldn't stand to let down my husband, my children, my family, and my friends! Not to mention the whole world. (Or at least the part of the world that visits this blog!)
Suddenly, it doesn't seem quite so stupid any more! So thanks for holding me to my word, no matter what lame excuses I conjured.
Now I'm going to go read a book! I'll save scrubbing the shower for tomorrow . . .
