Finished chapter 7 today, which is halfway through my newly-revised 14 chapters. Halfway through the word count, too. That’s a handy thing, because the month is halfway gone as well.
It’s really starting to feel like I’m over the hump; the characters are moving themselves along, I’m writing over 2000 words in a sitting (which helps with all the procrastinating I do), and the plot is shaping up quite nicely. I got a bit talky with this chapter, but I made up for it at the end by having one of the main characters kick some a$$ with his own brand of tinker-fu. I’m really looking forward to these next few chapters, because the other main character now gets to learn some of that tinker-fu from the master, which means I get to figure out how it all works.
Let’s just hope I can think of a reason for it all before I have to write an ending. But hey, we’ll burn that bridge when we come to it.
