I actually ‘finished’ this ‘book’, at exactly 50,000 words (by some fluke) on Friday, November 19th at 7:49 pm, at which point my husband suggeted we go out for ice cream . . . I couldn’t validate it until the end of the month.  Like all first drafts, or parts of first drafts, it’s terrible!  But I plan on spending the next year making it better 🙂
