I must just hate the traditional 1,667 words per day that come up for NaNoWriMo, for I've put off writing the novel for five days just so that I can finish this other short story.
But it's done, just in time for my daily word count (to be a winner) to add up to an even 2,000 words per day.
Thank God. If there's a number I hate, it's 1,667.
Now I'm off to outline, without having an unfinished short story hanging over my head.
