Word Nerd accomplished her goal this weekend of finishing the rough draft of the novel.
The novel, though partly contained still in handwritten notebooks, now has a beginning, middle and end. The page count so far is over 200 with more than 66K words. Word Nerd's next task is to finish typing in everything so the whole novel is is one place. She's pretty sure she can accomplish that by the end of February.
Anyway, the story's done and Word Nerd's excited.
