For those of you that were doubting my ability to write a novel in the space of 1 month when I have never before written anything in my life, not even a measly short story, KEEP DOUBTING!
(Note: journal entries and school papers not being counted as things written)
But also, HAVE HOPE!!!!

Yesterday was the 15th of November, exactly halfway through the month, and I reached the 25,000 word marked. I passed it up, even.
Tonight, by the time I go to sleep, I am hoping to have 27,000 words. I'm 150 words away, for the record.
I know, it's me keeping right one track. At this rate, come November 30, I will have a book of pretty much exactly 50,000 words. But that's all I need.
Are you proud of me? Do you think I can do it?
In the meantime, since I have decided that I AM going to finish this book, does anyone want to read it and help me edit it. I figure it is going to need some mega editing. :-)

In other news, I made some delicious dulce sin leche cupcakes yesterday from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and they were SO good that we had eaten them all by the end of this morning (not just me and Guillaume - we did have friends over for dinner last night). I had some coconut milk left over, so I decided that meant I needed to make more cupcakes. There were some old bananas turning black, so I made some chocolate banana coconut cupcakes (recipe from my mind), and they are EXTREMELY scrumptious!

Okay, that's all, folks - I have words to write!

Sounds like fun. I'd like to read it, assuming it's in a genre I might be interested in. Also, are you not talking to me?

I would love to read it! Ok I don't study english syntax and grammar, but maybe I can help, as I studied in translation.........

send me a copy. I didn't know you had started this project. Although, you would probably rather have a native English speaker look at it rather than me... JM
