Just dropping in with the following reports:
- The official wordcount (aka words actually in draft documents, rather than random notes) just topped 10k.
- I have, for the first time since I started the damn thing, actually finished a chapter.
- I have, for the first time since I started the damn thing, actually got a plan for proceeding that seems workable.
This, of course, just means I have to get 20,000 words written between now and Wednesday evening. That’s a far worse thing than it sounds, incidently; I could probably get 5000 words a day done in a pinch, but I’ll be utterly useless for anything else afterwards and that’s not a luxury I’m going to get anytime soon.
I suspect there will be some measure of begging for mercy in my near future.
