So – this happened yesterday. I topped out at 50,985 words. Never again will I say 500 words per day is about all I can do. Some days, that may feel true – but when I push myself (and have the right playlist), I know what I’m capable of.
I’m giving myself some time off to get caught up on things around the house, finish Christmas shopping, and read (I’m so behind on ARCs) – and then the massive edits begin. I may have nearly 51k words, but it’s out of order, names may or may not have changed midway, plot points took on a life of their own and went in different directions – basically it’s a pile of incoherent ideas and sentences that need to be whipped into shape. But I finished.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
