I'm at 47,367, on the penultimate day, and I'm feeling quite relaxed - even though I have to go out to rehearse and then drive M home.
What I don't need to happen - and it would be a good example of sod's law if it did - is to get this close to finishing and then miss the bleedin' deadline. Oh no. No way siree.
When I get to the BIG 50 I'm going to read what I've written, complete a real outline and character and location sheets, and then carry on writing. I think I have three interwoven story arcs - which are not interwoven in the right places, and a plethora of sub-plots that need pruning.
100k is my present guestimate for the finished novel.
