I have reached a word count of exactly 50,000 words in the first draft of my book. I challenged myself to see if I could write exactly 50,000. No more, no less. I succeeded.
I, Amanda, solemnly promise not to look at the draft of my book until at least a month, if not two, has elapsed. No friend, family member, or stranger may read this work until this time has passed and I have edited so that I can keep some self-respect.
For the record Bryan, you owe me a chocolate pancake breakfast.
