Well, it’s all over and I managed to eke out a win, with a little over 24 hours to spare. I will now spend the month of December napping and cleaning up the wreckage that is my office. (And the rest of my house, frankly.) It was fun, frustrating and, ultimately, fulfilling. I feel like I finally made some good progress on my books.

On to the update:
Avenging Fate: 31,500
Idea that has no title but which will not leave my head: 19,300
Final total: 50,800. Just barely over the finish line, but finished just the same.
Happy Video of The Week
