Victory is ours! We have succeeded in our goals! We have remained friends through thick and thin, word wars, and chocolate deprivation!
Having reached our goal of 50,000 words each (which comes to a total of 150,000+ words all together!) we have rewarded ourselves several ways, the most popular being that we have not touched our manuscripts since we finished. It has been wonderful, and I think our word vocabulary's are slowly returning. (Although I am beginning to think there may be some slight permanent damage, I couldn't remember the word for rack yesterday when I was moving things around in the oven. . . . )
To celebrate this victory we have a little surprise planned for you all that will be posted, hopefully, sometime in the next two weeks.
