I did it, I did it, I did it!

     Finished the first chapter of book five AND passed the long-anticipated million-word mark, of writing done for the love of t'DoL. Wow!

     Gonna go pinch myself now! ;D (Then comes the food treats and money squandering, and all sorts of fun...maybe I can even be done with sleeping on the floor soon, now that it's finally starting to resemble autumn around here!)

Congratulations! Million-word mark is absolutely mind-boggling; you deserve the food treats and the money-squandering! :)

And congrats on not having to sleep on the floor anymore, as well (though I personally enjoy summer nights on the living room hardwood).

Thanks! Even though I've been looking forward to this milestone for a long time, I still can't quite believe it!

A few nights is just fine, but I'm getting near the 3-months mark now, and me old bones are protesting. ;)

Thanks! =D

It was fabulous to start celebrating by winning the Cuttle PoadTM auction 30 minutes after I was done writing the chapter!

Glad you like it! Leaves ARE fun!

Don't tell me you have to do a captcha when you're already logged in?!

Re: Wow!!
hmmm... that's a good question. I was logging in at the same time as I was posting my reply (since that brother of yours got an account, the computer doesn't keep my logged in), so that might have been why....
