Winner winner chicken dinner

Check it:

Boo. And also: yah.

I did it. I can't believe it, but I did it. I'm done. 50,000+ words in thirty damn days. (Final, official word count, according to the kind NaNoWriMo bots: 51,247)

That's like: whoa. (Sorry, but it really is kind of a "I know kung fu" moment)

So: that's all. I wanted to revel in the glory of winning this damn thing for the first time. I think I'm going to sleep soon - maybe that will stop the incessant bleeding from the eyes.

Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement re: the thing I just got done writing. (Even though I am not quite done with it yet)

Boy, this has been a parenthetical post, hasn't it?

(FYI: Title comes from cbeard, who got it from some other insane dude. Manky bastards, both.)

Congrats! We're all very proud of you up in Canada!

Found your blog by way of the link in your Scalzi comment on book suggestions and wanted to confirm that someone other than you reads your blog. If you're like me (and if you are, I'm sorry), you will immediately show this comment to your wife and do a happy dance over your newly discovered international audience.

I read/skimmed through most of your posts and enjoyed myself thoroughly. From your blog, I learned about Garfield w/o Garfield, the Dharma logo mindf*ck in Cloverfield (2 minutes from the season premiere of Lost should be floating around the internets somewhere if you're interested), and the coolness that is the friday random ten (our music tastes are similar). So thanks. Keep writing. Non-you people will keep reading. Cheers!
