working on my writng, plus we had a power-outage today.
(which kept me from showering or exercising, and from finishing the veg I tired to make to go with Linner/dunch. But I did work on my laptap till the battery ran out)
I hit 71,789 words. I had set 70,000 as the bar, so I have reached it. :)
Something I never thought I would be able to do.
Of course this last section I just finished putting in today, The Letters, has many messy sections, and needs to be organized better, and I imagine 2,000 words will be cut by the time I am done with that process.
But still I am pleased to have made it this far, and I am not done with the first rough draft, so it should surely be longer than 70,000 words. Which is a bit of a relief, because I was always worried it would be too short.
Then again who knows, how short it will be, after I finish the first rough draft, and go in and tidy the story up.
In related news, can tell the boys not thrilled that I am giving my time and energy to paper
(except for the cat, who likes knowing I will be sitting in one spot for long stretches of time)
