In three days, through no small amount of work, I finally pushed it just over the 50,000 word mark.
OK, enough bragging for me. There is no way I could have done this without my family's support, especially the last couple of weeks. Every spare minute was consumed by writing, and I have barely seen them. They covered for my housework, helped with animal chores, and encouraged me to keep going no matter what. This wouldn't have been possible without them.
So for my parents, thank you for everything. Everything. I really can't thank you guys enough.
For my siblings, thank you for covering some of my responsibilities so I have time to write and for understanding when I said "I can't do that today, I have to write."
For my extended family, thank you for all of the encouragement and support you have given me. It has kept me going.
For Brenna, thank you for being my writing buddy, and for constantly writing more than I did so that I would be encouraged to keep going. Congratulations on meeting your 60,000 word goal.
