No internet and stats

Our modem died. I don't have the internet, so I'm writing this from my parents house. I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to all of your blogs this week. I'll make it up to you next week! Hopefully I'll be back online by then! I feel naked without it...

On a happy note, I finished my first draft of INBETWEEN last night!! :D :D :D I am so excited to get this book all finished and polished. I love it.

I think stats are fun, so here are my stats.

Started: July 20, 2011
Finished: September 29, 2011
61,300 words.
45 chapters

This is the fastest book I've ever written. Crazy. Now I'm off to edit it a little and then I'll send it to my betas. WOOT!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

No internet?! I'm getting a panic attack for you. But it probably helped you to finish your draft, eh? Yay, you finished! I'm super impressed by your speed.

Btw, what's it about? Maybe you should just let me read it:)
