!!! I WON !!!

There it is, up there on the top left hand corner, right above last years :)

WOOT!!!

This one was hard as you can see from my stats. I stalled after about eight thousand words. It became very real what I was doing, reliving the stuff that disabled me. Words came out thick, me pausing through sentences, going "umm" and such.

Was a hard write in places.

But usually,

a hard write is the right thing to do.

I text messaged the novel to a very good friend of mine. An abuse advocate who without her help, this thing wouldn't have gotten done the way it did, if at all.

Was over eight hundred texts I think (eyes are kinda blurry. Been starring at a phone for hours on end for a month)

Now onto the re write, get this thing ready for publication.

The add a link thing isn't working for some reason. Just copy and paste it to see. Go to stats to see the progress :)

See you guys around the warp,

!!!Almost Done!!!

Sup Guys!

Thank you all for the look see's and nudges of support. The Minions and Papa JJ rock as always and welcome to the new guy who stopped by, decided to keep on stopping by :)

Right on man

About to cross the 35k mark here in a little bit. I'm behind on the word count "officially" but we don't like "officially" here at The 25mm Warrior.

Not like I'm writing the thing traditionally anyway.

So far I've sent 748 texts that make up it's word count. Within those texts have been a back that's gone out 3 times, the stomach flu, my phone breaking and the usual pain and suffering here at the happy house

Really, when your "LG Ally" touchscreen gets screwed up to the point it looks like I'm trying to get free porn in the 80's off a cable box I'm not supposed to have...

well,

it's one of the most stomach twisting "...I've lost R2" moments from Star Wars Episode 1: A New Hope I've ever had (no... it is no longer Episode 4 thanks to disaster of the new trilogy I'm sorry to say).

So it, like everything else, has been a challenge.

You guys can see me cross the finish here in a few days here.

Also, where to go with this dusty old blog. Can't really do it like I used to. Might need to make some mid course corrections.

More on that after the event however :)

Cheers!
