Finishing NaNo Today

Writing to you from the NaNo trenches: I have 47,285 words written right now. The 50,000 word finish line is in sight! I will be holed up at Peet's Coffee today until I cross it. I am going to win this year. Woohoo! :)

Update, 1:13 PM: I'm now at 48,325 words. 1.7k left to go!

Update, 5:37 PM: I did it! 50,000 words! I win! :D

"Is the story done?" she asks. Hrmph!

Well, yes, it is, mostly. I have plenty of "[INSERT SCENE HERE WHERE THEY DO X]" when I realized that I needed more setup for some things I was writing along. But that's par for the NaNo course.

And my ending is weak, because I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to wrap up after the final battle. But I did get to an "ending" of sorts, even if I will probably replace it with something better later.
