Yes. 25,000 words have been done. I am singing the Bon Jovi song in my head.
And the plot is progressing. But I am beginning to feel worried, not about the word count, but about getting the story right. There are so many things happening now, I am conscious of trying to keep the plot in order, getting the time lines right, not leaving loose threads, etc.
It would be dangerous now to begin editing, or reworking, earlier parts of the story. I am resisting the temptation as much as I can. But I have gone back and added a few sentences to earlier chapters, in order to assimilate some of the later happenings into the earlier storyline.
Excuse me. Back to work. Only 25,000 words to go …..
