Progress

Forty-two thousand, two hundred and forty six words, one hundred and thirty pages, sixteen chapters of first draft. Final approach to climax. Now I have to figure out exactly what that is.

It's the first half of a novel. Noob.

First half? So climaxing now would be... premature ejaculation?

(Actually the "this" in the post was the climax, not the 42,246 preceding words. It's a short novel. And it will probably get shorter with editing.)

I think you have more text there than I have for this revision of my novel, though. That's pretty good! No reason your revision couldn't move it into novel range. *nudge*

Actually, it's not quite at the climax yet, I may end up over 50K (55?), even after revision. I doubt I'd be able to pump it up to 80K, though, unless I radically changed my ideas about where I want to go with it.

Lunch time. Let's see if I can write some more...
