word/page count note
the current word count of 32521, or 40%, is as of last friday. the weekends are now off limits, to make this more sustainable as an endeavor, and because we had a family gathering in western mass all day saturday, and we’ve got friends visiting all this weekend. anyway, that’s the total for 3 weeks of writing, and i’m not complaining; that’s about 140 pages, typed and doublespaced. i was worrying about my pace earlier this week, but with the latest work, i think i’m still on target to reach a finished first draft before school starts.
so enough chatting.
