I did it! I wrote 50,106 words in 25 days. And they are useful words. Words that make sense. There are, no doubt, typos in there. There are a great many things I will change in December, when I begin editing. But it feels good to have accomplished a goal. I have tried this for the past 5 years. Each year, I have put more and more into it. And each year, I have gotten more words. This year, I did it.
