I'm at 30,000 plus a handful, and this story has it's own momentum now.

I still have a long way to go in the story arc, but the plot has thickened, so to speak, and it seems to take fewer words to cover each event now.... and the character's are surprising me by demanding new and different roles for themselves.... forcing them on the track I had originally mapped out would work against the unity of the story, so I'm following them and the story's logic where it goes.

For now though, after a piddley 1,500 words for the day, I'm breaking to make cookies, have a dance party with my girls, and watch a movie this evening.

I want 40,000 by Friday night though, so I'm planning on three big days coming up.

It can be so hard to keep your characters on track sometimes. I have a friend who started her story at the wrong time, so now she has to jump forward a couple of months. 40k by Friday is really impressive. I'm only at 30k right now. I'd like to be at 40k by Sunday night. Good luck!
