I won. I completed 50,000 words in time. Of course, only about 13,000 words are directly usable if and when I end up editing the story, the rest will have to be removed – they were imposed by the strict timetable and the explicit leave to lower one’s standards.
But, bottom line:
Ps. Please don’t ask to see the manuscript. It’s not that good
Pps. My mother won, too. Conga rats!
