Not to gloat, but here goes:
25,785 words, baby! I'm a little more than halfway there! And we're only only twelve days in.
I remain overjoyed about my progress and hopeful about finishing within the allotted time frame. This is so awesome. Every day, I'm so happy that I signed up for this challenge. I'll reiterate: every writer needs to try this just once.
What a rush!
