When we left on our mini-vacation Tuesday evening, I was 2,000 words behind because I spent all of Tuesday running like a maniac to get everything done. I did about 700 words in the car. We got home about 4:00 yesterday, and 25 hours later, I finished the last 7,032 words. The story is not finished yet. It doesn’t even have a proper title. The plan is to have my own personal Novel Finishing Month. I am sure it will end up under 100,000 words, so getting it done before Christmas shouldn’t be a problem.
I did discover over the weekend (“weekend” in this case being Wednesday through Sunday) that I have friends and family members who enjoy reading about the writing and the process I use, so I’ll just keep on like I have been. If it’s making you crazy, drop me a line.
