08:49 – Today should be a nice gentle day at work, which will help with getting 2.5k bashed out. I am determined to hit 50k before the estimate the stats give me of 24th, which means doing a little more today and tomorrow. After that, I can settle in to my 2k per day to hit 60k before the end of the month despite the two full days I don’t expect to get anything done.
14:01 – I had a very productive lunch hour, getting 1555 words out. Just two more phases until I hit the day’s target, and if I go beyond that at all (probably by two more) then that’s less to get done by the 30th.
21:47 – two more phases done, as expected. Total word count is now 47,663, so five more days of 2.5k and I’m all done for November!
…after which I need to continue for another three months to reach the end of the manuscript.
Oh! Oh! And…
Look At This!
Derbyshire has *finally* made it into the top 50 regions by wordcount per novelist! Yay!
