Party on, dudes!

This post is a day late, but yesterday, my book reached the almighty 50,000 words.

I shall try not to return to my slacker self now. Please ignore the drop in today's word count. In my opinion, it's still freakin' awesome. Although tomorrow is birthday cake (my sis-in-law and her twin sister are 40 - party time. And oops! just announced that to the world. Bad me), and Tim Burton's Sweeny Todd (if I have my way), and babysitting so I'm expecting a pretty zero.

Yesterday's word count: 1709 + 376 (other projects)
Today's word count: 1268 +  801 (other projects)
Total word count: 51,680 + 6421 (other projects)

In the immortal words of Bill & Ted, 'Party on, dudes!'

Side note: In real life, I say 'dude' far too often. I suspect it is annoying. I do not care.

Congrats. "Dude" is fine. Start using "Bro" ad nauseum, then there's gonna be problems. :)

Congratulations! Wanna finish mine for me? I don't mind.
