Wow! Monsters and spies and the anguish of immortality — 1315 words, and 89,746 total

Tomorrow, I’m going to hit 90,000 words.

I still have eight unwritten chapters outlined, and I still have one character who is locked inside some deep trouble, and one whose real identity has not yet been discovered, and I’m writing toward the ending that’s already finished so at least that won’t go haywire…

But SHORT AND TIGHT isn’t working out for me right now.

I’m pretty sure I’ll have some things I can cut severely in the revision.

Right now, I just have to make sure I don’t leave out the essentials in the first draft.

Good writing day, where I had a lot of fun (though my main character most definitely did not… Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!).

Now to hit the last items on my list.
