It’s those last two thousand words that are killing me, let me tell ya. On the other hand, the book’s done, in terms of plot anyway. And on the gripping hand, I also want/need to finish up the Patreon short story tonight, and that’s been about a thousand words already, so there you go. Still, I’ll probably be able to hit 1,434 words tomorrow.

PS: I know that it’s an artificial benchmark, but it’s still a benchmark, dig?

This total might change today, but I got to a good stopping point and my wife and youngest have just gotten home.  We are just starting the final confrontations, because there’s a lot of people coming to this denouement party.  Hopefully it’ll all work out.  And then I just need to fill in some bits, and then we’ll have ourselves 50,000 words.

And that’s where the fun really starts.  Frozen Dreams will be no more polished and ready to go than The Case of Charles Dexter Ward was when they pulled it from HP Lovecraft’s posthumous files.  And, yes: I am precisely that arrogant.  This is news?

Annnnd we are back on track.  Shockingly, we are also staring down the actual, no fooling, end of the plot.  Once it’s done, it will be 50K words’ worth of story.  I’ll have to rewrite the living hell out of the whole thing, but, yowsers, there’s a book forming here.  To quote a character from the book It; it may be an awful novel, but at least it won’t be an awful unfinished novel.

Then again, given what happened to that character…
