I reached my goal of 30,000 words on the new book one day early. Now on to the question of what to do with December. I think I might just try to maintain the pace and slam down another 30K words before the change of the year.
I'm aware that what I'm writing is going to need serious edits - by this I mean major surgery - before it's in a form reputable enough to qualify as "book." But the breakneck pace has served to keep the plot cooking along, so I see no reason to abandon it yet.
