It's kind of a cop out, but I got to 50K words today by counting the words I had to cut from my original idea. I figure if I hadn't been so edit-y I would still have them, and I wrote them this month so it's not technically cheating. I also counted the words in these notes and in my outline. They are all story related, and the rules allow me to count them, so I did. I was just too stressed about finishing to 50 in time and I've got too much to do for the holiday. I'm at Jiffy Lube right now, I baked cookies, colored my hair, actually got a shower. I'm still picking up something for dinner though, lol. I don't have much to go to finish the first draft, and I'm hoping to get it done in the next week. Excited and relieved!
