*stupid, stupid grin*  
I have just finished writing a 555 page novel.

*stupid, STUPID grin*!

This is the first time in a *really long time* that I've been *actively pleased* about finishing a book. Wow. Wow! I am just completely goddamned delighted right now! It came in at, um. 132,000 words, and frankly the last two or three chapters need an assload of work, but *damn*, the big work is DONE! *Wow*!

*falls over and kicks feet and EHEHEHEHEHEH SQUEEEEEEE*!

ytd wordcount: 366,600

You need to go write another 100 words.. I mean can you really leave yourself with a number of 666 in the middle of your total wordcount? :)

Besides, that was only 3300 words from yesterday's word count. Don't you have more in you for the day?

But we'll be nice and give you the congrats... 'cause you deserve it.

So now.. being that you've stated in the blog you past word counts and what you do to make yourself a professional writer. What do you do on days when you finish a project before you word count goal is done? Anything special? Do you give yourself a few more days before starting the revision process?

*chuckles* I get those looks a lot, they don't phase me anymore.
