well, it was definitely an experience. one that will be repeated in the future, in case you were wondering, but without the five hour trips to the gym. I will either have a car by then or skip the gym. that’s just a lot of writing time gone. yeesh! also, I somehow picked up a damn cold. I’ve been sneezing my head off all afternoon. I’m hoping it’s just a lack of sleep and that I’ll be all right tomorrow. I wisely took the morning off so I can sleep/recover.
I submitted the novel already. No sense hanging onto it since I can’t work on it after another hour from now. either it’ll win or it won’t, an hour won’t make any difference. as for the novel itself, well, I ended at 32,442 words and 103 pages. in my mind, that’s not nearly long enough. it’s not half of what I wanted, and expected, to get done this weekend. I’m actually very irritated about that. no excuses though. I should’ve just started with this novel instead of having to switch from the bus book after a whole day’s writing.
I do plan to work from this draft and delve a lot more deeply into it. if I do happen to win, then I doubt they’ll mind a much better version down the road. hehehehe. I submitted what I had, so I guess we’ll see what happens.
so that’s it folks! thanks for the posts from those who encouraged me! off to sleep now. :o)
