I have written more than I thought I would today and I have suddenly realised that tomorrow will see the "THE END" tag being typed up at the bottom of the page... I am actually ahead of (my latest) schedule, which is immensely satisfying. This will give me a good three weeks to work on the corrections and the synopsis before I enter the ms for the competition...
I have 93,791 words, which is a lot. I will probably reach the 95,000 mark tomorrow when I finish...
I got a little bit emotional, because one of the characters dies and I could feel this little knot in my throat while I was typing this person's last moments - it's still there! I suppose it is a good sign.
I am lucky enough tp have never witnessed a death, and this one is a little bit unusual and reflects on the rest of the novel.
A good day, then.
I cannot wait for tomorrow evening.
I think therefore I write.
