Punch the button, because I’m calling it at 55,000. GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND is a mess that will require more words and entire sections written, or rewritten; but the plot works and I can come back to it after I lick TINSEL RAIN into shape. And at 55K it’s above the ‘official’ target number. I’m well-content.
Technically, everything after this is gravy because the target number for NaNoWriMo is 50,000. In my opinion, the more I can do of this, the better. I’m going to have to bump it up to 80,000 words anyway before I can send it out.
