20,072 words and sprinting

I am nearing the half way point in my NaNoWriMo write-fifty-thousand-words-in-thirty-days novel. Which, given I'm in the second month of starting my own business, having Thanksgiving tastefully interrupt, and had the launch/reunion trip...not bad. I've also discovered Ebbets Field opened just the year I needed it to and there were two, not one, big comets lighting up the fears of 1911.

I won't finish all 50,000 words but 25,000, you bet! Very delighted I can write 60 pages in such a short time. I'll write the rest at a more leisurely pace of 1,000 words a day and cycle the chapters through my most excellent writing group. I am looking forward to the rewrite, I feel like I finally knew my main character by chapter 11.
