I can breathe!

After a huge jump on 11/11 (which I had off), I was able to catch up and I have now surpassed the par.  I’m at 44K words.

If I really wanted to, I suppose I could finish off the book now.  Part of me wants to do it.  Part of me wants to do what I usually do when my characters are 39 and some change in the game: just play alerts to get to 40, because then that’s the end.

But part of me wants to savor this like fine chocolate, wants to write this stuff right, even if it’s a first draft.  I right now am going to have about 2K words in a bar, 2K words for the climax, and 2K words for the aftermath.  That’s what I’m thinking and planning.

But as you all know, nothing goes as planned.  I still have a whole weekend to write.  But I have a feeling I’ll be finished with this before that weekend arrives.  And then I will have earned my t-shirt!
