Well … with the first draft, anyway!
I topped out at 96,403 words, a good 15k above my original estimate. (Good thing I started out conservatively …) That’s small enough to allow me some wiggle room for fleshing out (worldbuilding details and such), and maybe I’ve matured enough as a writer to not need TOO much tightening of my writing … we’ll see. 😀
I plan to let it “cool” for a week or two (unless I just can’t stand it any more) before starting revisions. And catch up on critiques. And start seriously decluttering my house …
And rest. I have a terrible cold today. Bleah. Too much sugar (Valentine’s Day) and not enough sleep … I think I blitzed through 10k just this last week or so. (Not bad for a distracted, hurried, klutzy mom of 8 … oh, wait, that’s another story for another day …)
