After a sizable hiatus, I’ve taken time off from my job to complete the novel. The current word count is 95,956. I’ve written 40,000 words in the last three weeks. Amazing what you can do when you don’t have to work. This is not work. This is fun. My daily word quota is 2,000 which I usually hit. I’m hoping to finish the first full draft by mid-October. Wish me luck.
