Day 10 – 20k in 10 days – FINISH!

Day 10:

Target: 20,000 words

Actual: 20,023 words

Done! Scraped over the line at 11:14pm (West Aust. time). Will now email it to Phill who will verify and let me out of my bet.

Completely shattered. Will reflect on this better in the morning and blog on some of the thoughts I have had about the process as a whole.

I’m pretty pleased though. The story – though written poorly in places – is cohesive and structurally reasonable.

May have to think up some kind of editing challenge next 🙂

Thanks for your support along the way folks!
