Quick novel update
Last night I didn't go to bed (like I should have). Leah was staying up making pumpkin soup (from scratch for her lunch the next week...or at least it seems that way (we have a lot of soup)) so I couldn't sleep. Another thing that probably contributed to keeping me up was my credit card bill (never check that shit after 6:00pm).
The point is, I was up so I decided to write. I only got a few pages out, but when I quit for the night I checked my word count--and it turns out I crossed another milestone.
As of this morning my novel is at 70,026 words. The general, academic definition of a novel being 80,000 words--so only 10,000 more before I'm "legit."
