51k! (29 Nov 2004 at 02:20)
Last night I passed the magical 50,000 word mark for Nanowrimo, qualifying me as a "winner." As I've mentioned earlier, I started early this year, so not all of those 50k words were written in November, which then disqualifies me as a true Nanowrimo winner. But, since my novel is not actually finished yet, and I'm already at 51660 words, with two days left, all I need to do is keep up my standard word count and I will total 50k for the month and 55,000 total, requalifying me as a true winner.

Statistics so far: There are 20 illustrations in my novel, though I had planned to have more (I will probably draw some more over the next few days). It is so far 228 pages (my 2003 wrimo was only about 175, due to a lot less dialogue and a lot fewer illustrations). It contains two rock operas.

And so, coming soon to a vanity press near you: His Sophomoric Effort!

This year you should make a Book On Tape version!

It's about a gigantic phallic protuberance into space, not tape.
