I'd at 43,569 words right now. I'm going to make it and I'm really excited. I love this challenge. I've taken unexpected turns in my novel and discovered surprises. This is a worthy way to spend your time. I encourage everyone to try next year. Writing is probably the only real power I have in life. I'm going to keep up this pace and work on projects to revise them. I wish that National Novel Writing Month was every month.
