So I did it. I made the 50K mark. I had a brief moment of satisfaction about that, then realized it doesn't mean anything because the book is nowhere near finished. And I mean NOWHERE.
Writing in sequence doesn't work for me. I've learned that now. So I've given up on that and am currently working on the climax and ending of the book. Hopefully that will help guide the middle section I haven't written yet. Well, not much of yet.
So, I feel like I'm probably around 20-30K away from finishing the book, which isn't so bad. I thought I was aiming at a 60-65K book, and I probably still am, after serious editing.
How's your progress? Is your book shaping up into a book, or is it a massive pile of jumbled words?
