Well, the writing is going all right. I'm under 5k to go. I can't believe I've written this much in so short a time. Of course, it's not pretty. I don't know if there is a plot or if there is anything worth reading when all is said and done, but I'm pretty damn impressed that I took a back story from a pretty much half-written novel and went running with it. As I've been writing this, I've been working on bits and pieces of my other story (all in my head) but I think I'm getting a idea of where the story will eventually end up.

Word count so far into this thing: 45293. Wow... 4707 words to go. This story won't be complete in 50k. I'm thinking if I can wrap it up in 75,000, I'll be doing well. There isn't much left to write. I have three scenes maybe four scenes to write and then the story will be done. I suppose the rewriting, revising and editing can start after that. There is a lot of details I've skipped over as I"m writing, (mostly historical type stuff that I'll fill in later. I know I'll have to work on dialogue just to make it sound like a 20 year old from the 60s, rather than the 80s, which was my era. So once I hit 50k, my next objective is to finish the story!

Hmmm... how are you doing Cathy? Don't give up. I like what you sent me so far. I want to read more.

ETA: I have 641 words left to write! I know this story will be longer than 50,000 but maybe not by much.
