Day 46

Well I told myself that I had 20 minutes to write tonight. Maybe that’s why the words flew. Or maybe the scene had been writing itself all day and was just waiting to come out. Whatever, I got 692 words out. I was greedy and hoping to do more but that was it – I was done. And it’s close enough to bedtime to not force it. 692 good words is nothing to sniff at in my opinion.

I just finished compiling my novel in Scrivener – curious to see where I was but also wanting to back it up. I’m at 31,300 words and 104 pages not including the title page. Speaking of which, I really need to correct the title. I’m not getting attached to it – the publisher might/will probably want to change it, but it’s a lot better than the old one I was living with. More succinct and catchy. Not that the book is catchy but hey, if a catchy title makes someone pick my book up, I can live with that.
