Countdown: Seven

Yesterday might have sucked from start to finish, but today is going to be great. I’m starting with HAWKSPAR, and going from 174,430 words to 177,555 words or better. This ought to put me near the end of the climactic scene.

I’m realizing that in first draft I’m going to come in under 200,000 words, which is okay, considering the amount of work I’m going to have to do on the revision. I know there are parts where I’m going to end up adding, and frankly, 15,000-20,000 words of new material in the revision is not out of the question. I’m not sure when I’ll be finishing the first draft, though. Like I said, I know where it’s going to end, but I’m still not sure how I’m going to get there.

I am, however, excited to see.
