NaNoWriMo 2003 Winner

I still need one more chapter to smooth up a rough place in the plot, but I actually FINISHED this novel. Then, about 2:30, I either went into an epilogue, or have a glimmer where NaNo '04 is heading...

During editing, the stuff I ran in about people's 911 "Where Were You" will be dropped/edited, and the story Despina tells while they are stopped, trying to disable the truck without doing permanent damage may get chopped entirely... I'm undecided at present.

So, on to LAUNDRY (VITAL) and a stack of papers that piled up last week...


I still have some words at school and in my green journal not typed in yet, as I was not near the computer when I wrote them, but the novel has 52,970 with the backstory Despina relates in the desert and the various people's 911 contributions.
