I wrapped up with 50,176 total words in the story tonight—a nice milestone after the delay that had kept me at 49,590 for what… about two weeks?
My revised plot cards are all in place, my arterial bypass grafted around the nasty clot of wrong turn is working beautifully, and the 586 words I got tonight felt good.
Aleksa is in an interrogation room at the police station, after defending herself against an abduction attempt staged right outside the station.
It was an interesting scene to write.
And after the luxury of a week-long birthday (complicated somewhat by the fact that I ended up working my ass off getting folks into the last Think Sideways class of the year), it felt magnificent to be sitting up here in the bed, laptop fired up, spinning fiction again.
How about you and your words?
