Ha. Haha! HAhhaHAHA! IT’S DONE! Oh, it’s not a real book yet. It’s got twenty thousand words’ worth of connective tissue to establish and more characterization to develop and there’s a plot hole or three to fix and at least one scene to write, but: 60000 words! I made it! With a day to spare!
So close to the 50K point. Close enough I was half tempted to burn my way through, but I decided to keep to the pace. Besides, TINSEL RAIN is still not quite a book at this point. I’m gonna need every word of that 60K. 80K, really.
Technically, the number is 50,000, so I could technically finish tomorrow or Wednesday. Realistically, it should be 80,000 but that’s really hard to do in a month without special training and no distractions. 60,000 is at about the height of my current prowess.
But I did write the ending today. Now we start throwing piles of words at places that I skipped over the first time!
Went well, although I’m going to need that extra 20 grand in wordcount to make this book coherent when it’s done. Also: margaritas! I wrote before I drank, don’t worry. But the week I had more or less required a discreet amount of tequila.
