Under 5,000 words to make the National Novel Writing Month goal, which is wonderful since Thanksgiving is enthusiastically encroaching. I'm guessing I'll need another 10,000 to 15,000 words to finish this first draft... By Christmas perhaps?
It is difficult not to get mired in all the places where the plot is thin or the logistics don't actually work out, but the research and the editing can wait. I have about 10 books on editing and a wonderful story-board software item on my Christmas list. Flaws and all, this one might see the light of day!
