Since I spent all day at work yesterday, I only had today to make my writing goal for the week. And hey, I actually did it:
I wrote 2700 words and all of Chapter 20! Go me!
Unfortunately, this brings the word count for ABOVE WORLD to 54,000. I’d been hoping the whole novel would be about 55K total, and I still have at least two chapters to write. I seriously underestimated the amount of time it would take to get through the novel’s endgame. And to make matters worse, I’ll probably have to add words during revisions, not remove them, since I tend to write too short.
Ah, well, gotta learn this stuff somehow, right? Onward to Chapter 21!
