A winner is me!

Well, that's one of my ten-year goals down, four to go! Next up: Hike the Pacific Crest Trail (ETA summer 2006), or perhaps get that tattoo (ETA undecided).

I'm going to sit back down and finish the novel now -- I validated it after I hit the 50K mark, but there's still a scene or two to wrap up tonight before it's totally done. Will finish uploading it after the final word is written.

And, for the benefit of those who have been patiently waiting all November for me to stop being all riddley with my story link, can someone in the audience point all interested parties at where I've posted the month's work? ]B=8)

I'll post a request for feedback on the novel a little later -- there are a few things I'm specifically wondering -- but in the meantime, you can also consider this an open thread for comments on "Notes from the End of the World."

Edit 7:30 a.m. Nov. 30:
Final word count: 54,586

Dec. 2:
Final rank: #767 out of 5,890 winners and 42,301 participants
