When I finished my writing on Monday evening, I was exactly at 50,000 words. For the NaNo-ers out there, you understand the significance of 50k. This is a weird thing for me, because all but one of my “novels” have been written under the banner of NaNoWriMo. I typically exceed 50k anyway, but that’s the typical goal. I have some books that are on my shelf that are not far beyond 50k. I look at them and see thin but otherwise completed books. In Green, I have only just begun.
