Journey “Any Way You Want It”

47,030. I have caught up to the target word count for the day, and surpassed it a little. My word count for today is more than the remaining word count I have left to write (which means finishing tomorrow is totally possible). I started my final scene, which I am trying to stretch as much as possible by adding more detail and description because it’s more important than any other part of the novel. Less than 3k to go and I am done for tonight, and getting to sleep at a decent hour for once.

No, I have to get to 47,157 so I can say I’m finally less than 1k behind Mark. 🙂 But that’s not much further. Then tomorrow I will claim sweet victory.

“Goodbye to You” by Patty Smyth

Fitting, seeing as I’m winding down the novel. Less than 700 more words to be CAUGHT UP at last! With 1 1/2 hours before midnight, that will not be a problem. I don’t want to start my big finale last scene until I’m closer to the end, but it’s coming.

“Broken Wings” by Mister Mister

Writing on my lunch hour at work. I’m up to 1011 today, and down to 4973 words left to write. I’m going to try really hard to make a big push and finish tonight since Mark’s working late, then going to his mother’s for dinner and to do laundry. If nothing else, I’m going to finally catch up to the daily word count goal. It’s less than 1667 more for that, and I can definitely do that. It’s about time!
