Wednesday, November 29, 2006


I passed the 50,000 word mark around midday, 29 November. The novel - The Living and the Dead - is not finished and won't be until some time in December, but the deal was to get 50,000 words done in November and I've done it!
So that's my goal for December - finish the novel. It will be the first I've completed since 1996, and it will really set me back on track for the new year.
I love goals (when I complete them, that is!) I've completed my goal of a totally sober October, and I'm going to complete my goal of 100 sober days in 2006 as long as I don't slip badly at Christmas, and I've completed my November goal of writing 50,000 words. I've succeeded in my 2006 goal of finding a new job and I am H - A - P - P - Y!
And now I'm going to go and reward myself - NO, not with a drink, with a nap! I'm exhausted!

Wow, that is a HUGE accomplishment! One word at a time, one day at a time -- good stuff happens in manageable bits. Hope your nap was restful!
