You maybe have noticed a slight note of celebration in that last sentence. This would be because it marks the end of a painful, agonizing story arc that I’ve been working on since April. 72,526 words to cover three hours of time, which brings the novel plot I complicated to make sure it’d last through Nano to 226,204 words.

That’s right, two hundred and twenty six thousand, two hundred and four words. So far.

Clearly estimating word count is not my strong point. I’m not sure what it IS, but word count estimation does NOT make the short list. But in jolly news, we find that I have only to cover an outline-line a day to make my goal for GOOD. And the last two lines turned into nine scenes, with three new named characters and a plot twist.

Maybe I shouldn’t have taken the afternoon off.

  1. Awesome word count (for today–I'm a bit scared at your overall total o.O) and yay for finishing the arc!

    I… would have something else witty to say except I have mushified my brain and, well, the zombies are STARING at me so… I think I will find them food. Before the staring gets any more, ahem, active.

    Yeeeah…

  2. @Merc: Yes, I heartily approve of keeping the Zombies placated. You go do that. And thank you!

    @Bahnree: And it's all YOUR fault. And Kemendraugh's. ^_^
