I passed 65,000 words on Sunday. Progress continues!
Lots of stuff running through my mind over the weekend and this morning, but I'm having trouble organizing my thoughts. Long story short: passing 65k felt pretty good, not to mention checking off scene after scene as I move toward completion of the rough draft.
Looking further ahead, I think it will be fun to finish up the draft, take a couple weeks off, then come back to read through the entire story and start the re-writing process. That should be in the early part of 2019, with my goal unchanged at publishing in the first half of the year.
