I have spent another day writing, over five hours, three chapters, 7285 words. My total over the first four days is now 17,730 words and I am in good shape. I have friends visiting from Kalamazoo tomorrow, so probably won’t get to write much, and then comes my hectic Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. But even if I don’t get much done until next Friday, I will still be on target, so that will lower stress levels. I added plot lines for three more chapters, so at the moment I have a reasonable idea of what is happening through Chapter Twenty and some vague notions for another four chapters after that, so not too shabby for this point in November.
current total: 17,730 words
