WHY ARE THEY $25? That's $2.50 a badge. But the idea is totally awesome. It would be cool do use the merit badges with other WriMos that are working to achieve their own badges...
ASLKFJASDLKFJASLDKFJA WHAT A COOL IDEA.
Anyway. Book's four chapters away from being done, I'm sure I'll make it through all 50 chapters like I originally thought, and so much for 60K, it's looking like it will just barely squeak past 50K JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER YEAR. But I really didn't use any word padding this time! So that's kind of interesting! I just wrote the story as I went along and it sort of worked out to be just around 50K.
I SAY ALL THIS AS IF I'M FINISHED ALREADY. I had a dream last night that I was finished. In my dream, I finished with exactly 50,037 words. And I went to the store to buy myself victory food? (I usually eat victory pizza, but for some reason this time I was buying myself a victory frozen chicken) And I realized I hadn't ACTUALLY finished my novel, I had just THOUGHT REALLY HARD about finishing it. Megan made fun of me and I sat down to write more.
It was surprisingly true to life, save for the chicken! Also, I think a carnival and black beverages were involved somehow, but I can't remember those details.
HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE!
