So my late night mental math goofed :-/ I'm actually still below 5,000, but not by much. The actual number is: 4,627 words.
I'm still going to try and be past 6,000 by the end of the day...
You learn more from your mistakes than your successes.
So here I am to try, and to fail, so I can learn.
Paul Fail. For The Win!
