Complete at 22,607 words

Okay, I've finished my 3-day "novel" in two days. It's actually more of a novella, or even a novellette, not even 23,000 words long.

But considering that I wrote almost 11,000 words yesterday and almost 12,000 words today, and my previous best was 10,000 words in one day and that was way back in around 2003, I'd say I've done pretty darn good.

Besides, the story holds up well. I don't think there are any big holes, although I already know a few things I need to go back in and change. That's okay, because I have one whole day left to edit and add stuff!

And I got a request for a full this afternoon from an agent, one I'd really love to have. So it's been a pretty good weekend all in all. Now I get to go to bed and watch TV without guilt. Because I have finished my 3-day novel in two days.

Congrats on the Full request - will keep my fingers crossed for you. And that is an amazing amount of words in 2 days. :)

I was actually hoping for closer to 30,000, but at least this way I got plenty of sleep (until the dog woke me up just now).

I'm really hoping about the agent!
