I'm sorry to hear that you won't be coming to WFC, as I was selfishly hoping to meet you there. But I'm also entierly on your team when it comes to meeting wordgoals so - go you! I'll be rooting for you from Sweden!
Also, ten years with my favorite world, not bad, and omg has it been ten years already? Congratulations to you and Abby Irene, can't wait to get my hands on the collection.
Take care and best of luck (not that you need luch per se) with the word count!
