I overshot myself a bit. Just finished submitting - used the lorem like you suggested - ended up being exactly 52362 words.

Yup! problem is, my mom lost the first page of the first draft. -sighs- >.> gotta go find it or just make do with what I've got for the second draft so far. (Once I pass a part in the 2nd draft, that part in the first isn't needed as much. But I still want my entire little brainchild around, you know? Moonlight is my baby. *snuggles manuscript*)

Well, you overshot, so as long as you hand me enough words, we're good to go.

Also, I made 43,000 even tonight! It came up as 42,998, but then I slipped in an "and" and a "she" to bring it up.

Alrighty, lets talk prizes:

Payout goes to these fine folks:
  • Chihiro: One box of melon.
  • Mitsukai, tentatively (when she shows me a manuscript): One box of an undecided flavor.
  • Raven Murder: One box of strawberry.

And that's it! Show's over!

Yay! Congratulations everybody! 4 people finishing really is pretty good, everybody who gave it a good effort should feel proud of themselves. Anybody who is interested in reading my novel or trading editing work on their's please please please PM me. ^__^

Edit: Oh, and I hate to repeat myself but is anybody else planning on going to the end of NaNo thing next Saturday at the downtown Powell's?

And I doubt you'd need a ride. There's fifty-three bus lines and three train lines servicing the Powell's we'll be at.

Seriously! I suddenly feel totally aimless. I've went back to my normal hobbies (reading, watching anime, playing videogames, etc) but with a vengeance. I feel like I'm doing NaNoWriMo for each of those things this month :D

But it really is a normal feeling, it happened last year but more badly (last year I got really depressed actually X3)

No, it's more like you are depressed that your life is no longer challenging and your goals are no longer crystal clear. But yeah, everything is a little bit good and a little bit bad.

I'll be at the TGIO party today, if you'd like to bring it then ::shrug::

Otherwise I'm not exactly sure when I can make it... XD I doubt my parents would be cool with me traveling to a different city to go to a 20-something-year-old boy's house to obtain soda. Perhaps we could meet somewhere like Uwajimaya? PM me if you think of anything that might work out.

Logistics, though. Everyone seems to think Ramune is weightless, but in actuality a box is 40 pounds and I don't drive, so I'd be lugging it all the way over to wherever you are on foot...

Well I don't drive either.  :-[

Hmm... lemme talk to some of my friends and see if I can work something out. If I can't get it to work out maybe you'll just have to keep it :'(

Winners have one week past thaw to claim their Ramune. After that, I'll drink it.

Contest over, books published, thread locked.
