Novel’s at 103,532 words…and it’s still not finished.
Wrote about 10,000 words in the last five days, pushing to uncover the ending. But there’s more story left to tell than I thought. Blew right past 90,000 words, then 100,000, and it’s not done.
My revised outline — yes, I’m still revising it, thank you — points to five more chapters, and then I’ll be finished. That means somewhere between 15,000 and 30,000 words to go.
So I’m pushing my deadline to July 1st, and setting a target of 1,000 words per day until it’s done.
One way or another, I will finish this draft.
