I have breached the 40k mark and currently sit at 43,827 before this night of writing.At this pace I should be done early which gives me some level of comfort. I don’t think this particular novel has much more than 50-60k in it. When I edit it might expand a little.
I have done not one word of editing so can’t say it is anything but rough at this point with a mountain of typos. But it has a good plot to it. It has solid characters with great backstory. And one character is currently going mad. It is her backstory. Hell of a backstory. Anyway, we are in the thick of things now.
