Well, technically it's just day 22 for me because I signed up eight days late, but no one's going to wait for me. I guess I knew this when I started out that it was a death sentence. I may have even mentioned that when I started writing.
It's just a little over three hours left until I can submit my word count, but I am not going to, because when did 10,800 become great when winning the contest required at least 50,000 words. So even though I was on leave today, I didn't write much because I knew there was no way I could reach 50,000. I have decided to take my time, build the story and characters and do this systematically.
