Getting a late start today as…well, long story, but I’m catsitting this weekend and the keys ended up lost, necessitating an early morning trip to Gettysburg, PA. I hadn’t built my schedule for this so it cost me some precious sleep that I’ve now caught up. I’m going to be cranking away from noon to midnight now.
First break of the day, hour long. I’m sitting at 3963 words for the day, a grand total of 17,076 words into the novel. I’m really hoping to hit the 25,000 word mark today so there’s still a lot of work to go, but feeling good. I’m currently embroiled in Chapter Nine, wherein the main character sees his addiction begin to escalate.
Starting to feel the exhaustion. Not great news when I’m still about 5,000 words from today’s goal. I’m now at 7,372 words for the day at a total of 20,485 since yesterday morning. Just finished Chapter Ten, wherein we had a significant proposal.
Calling it a day at 11, 895 words. Fewer than yesterday, but not bad considering I started three hours later and am wrapping up at just about the same time. The book now sits at a hair over 25,000 words, just where I wanted to be. Things have gotten very dramatic and are approaching the endgame, but new scenes are continually suggesting themselves as I write so it’ll be no problem hitting that 50,000. See you tomorrow.
