Halftime, and the score is…..25,040 words! I caught up!
I also killed off my first character, and killed my plot. That is to say, I wrapped it up (it was done). My novel is to become a “split novella” (patent pending) (Hmm… did someone say “patent”? Could that be a clue to what this so-called novel is about??) and I will start the second half tomorrow with renewed vigor and a mostly-clean slate.
Morale is high on this ship, yes. I really thought I might be reporting a disappointing early retirement. Not yet, anyway.
