I stopped writing at another convenient break-point. Crazed DJ Molly and our protagonists have joined up, and they are on their way back to the fall-out shelter. Tomorrow – both in terms of writing schedule and in the story world – the real action should begin. I am also “so close” to the 20k words mark – and that’s almost the half-way point. I am very confident that I will meet the 50,000 words, but I also want to “get it done” in November. At the current pace, that may be much harder to accomplish!
In more general news, I added myself to the science fiction wordcount chart. There’s no real point to that beyond being part of some list. As with all things, competition never hurts… I just don’t think it motivates me enough to try and outdo the guy above me.
