I will break 50k this weekend. Huzzah!
After tonight, I’ll have nine more chapters to complete in the first draft. Not huzzah. But, if I stick to my schedule, I should be able to finish a draft by the end of the month. More huzzahs!
The book will be a very, very rough skeleton at that point in time, but the main story will be there, beginning to end. I’ll add the tissue, organs, and muscles in the second draft, some skin in the third, and then it’ll get all dressed up and ready to see the world. Hopefully.
