Finished at 63,368

Today was pretty much scumbags and killers day. Had a lot of fun tossing red herrings left and right. (Why are the herrings red, incidentally, and why do they have to be herrings? Would smelt work? Or trout?)

And the killer got a fair amount of airtime, though I didn’t get to finish that scene — so that’s where I’ll pick up tomorrow. With Jess stepping neatly and unsuspectingly into the trap that is going to get her almost killed.

Total count for the day, 3270 words. Not including a complete write and rewrite and re-rewrite on a proposal.

Damned good writing day.
