I pushed through the 50,000 word barrier at 11:00 p.m. on 11/29/2010.
I am about halfway through the plot.
A lesson learned from previous years: I cannot take December off or the book will languish.
I’m taking a break until the weekend, when I will start work on the rest of the book. Not a grueling pace, though. I’m aiming for 750 words a day average. The rest of this week I’ll be figuring out what needs to happen in the next parts.
