Congratulations Q and good luck.
Somehow I imagined you as someone who only drinks Coke light. :D But in this case some drinking might be the thing to do.

Well Done, Q!

Well done! :clap:

I tried writing a book about 2 years ago, got to 50,000 words then stopped... so being able to Finish writing one seems like a massive accomplishment :clap:

And to regret, come the morning. :sleeping-drool: :confusion-seeingstars:

Seriously, though, I was acting crunk. Does anyone here think anyone drunk enough to vomit could post a YouTube of Naked Snake vomiting? And you're right, except I drink full Coke, not Coke light.

Anyway, thanks for all the congrats and stuff. It's the morning after, and I have no overwhelming desire to change anything. Yet. Which is a good thing, believe it or not. I have the desire to add some flavour text to enhance the cultural depth of the story, but it's not overwhelming, and I can wait until I get my editor's remarks.

50,000 words and then you stopped :o Will you ever go back to it? May be you could put a word count limit on it to focus getting it done and/or give it a makeover for a competition to help get it finished? :think: Seems a shame to write so much and not finish.
