quick writing update

My MaNoWriMo novel is currently 16,531 words long.

I'm still 2825 words behind, but I'm a third of the way through! :D And having to push for more than my "comfort zone" of 1500 words every day is really doing me a lot of good, I think. I'm learning to WRITE ALL THE SCENES, whether I think they'll wind up in the finished book or not, because every one of them teaches me more about these characters and their story. Even if every single one wants rewriting. ;-)

I don't know if I'll hit 50,000 words before the end of the month, but even if I don't, I am massively happy with this novel and I think I'm going to keep working on it after May is over until it turns into a coherent story with continuity. (Then I'll have to find a "first reader" to tell me how dire it is... oh, joy. *g*)
