Butt has been kicked. I am a NaNoWriMo winner.

According to my word processor I hit 51,408 words this evening. I'm not sure what the official word count is, but I have been informed that I am among the winners of the contest. 50k in one month. That's epic.

Favorite quote from today's work:

I took a sip of beer. One of the advantages of working for a crook with his office in a bar is that his office is in a bar.
My phone rang.
"Jake, my name's Keen. You want me to find out anything I can on these three guys, right?"
The voice was smoother than baby diarrhea and I told him so.

What? You want to actually know about the novel? Well the beginning has been written, and the ending has been written, and lots of the stuff that goes in between has been written as well. However, the novel needs a lot more writing (not to mention some very serious editing). The work will continue, but not tonight. Tonight, I celebrate.
