In the Home Stretch

Posted on January 12, 2007

I really think the end of this book (As in Days of Old – the sequel to Destined to Choose) is in sight. Really, I do! Honest! I mean it!

So I’m going to press on and see if I might just be able to get this done Done DONE! next week. Not by the end of next week, and not necessarily by Monday, but sometime during the week next week.

Wish me luck, please! Maybe I should blog my word count, sort of like a countdown to launch but going up instead. Both of my readers should find that really interesting (yawn).

Okay, so as of this moment, not including the outlining I finally had to do for the final climactic scenes, I have…

dum dum dum!

Drumroll please………………..

63,881 words written.

I’ll update y’alls tomorrow before Shabbat (my time). I plan to spend ALL DAY writing!

You can start the chanting anytime now: you can do it you can do it you can do it you can do it!

    One chant, comin’ right up:

    Yo, yo, yo!
    Go, gal, go!

    And may your fingers be spared any pain.

    You could ask us bloggers to fill in the blanks. It would ease the strain on your fingers. 😉

    Me fingers will be mere nubs by the time I’m done…

    I’ve hit 67,228 words so far, and hope to get an hour or so in tonight. That makes 3,347 words since I last posted. Which doesn’t necessarily mean much – I mean, I *could* just write nonsense (not that I would). But I did finish several scenes and am that much closer to the end.

    We’ll see how much I can get done tonight and tomorrow.
