The Guessing Game

Crossed the 30,000 word mark. That should have been the end. Instead, it was one of the most intense fight scenes in the book. Words went onto the screen effortlessly. I'd been looking forward to writing this scene for a long while.

And now the critical race against time begins. One character may die, but I really want them to survive. We'll see what happens in this first draft.

I estimate it'll go over 35,000 words. If it goes to 40,000 I may get to call it a novel after all.

Oh, did I mention a completely new character came out of the blue and introduced herself as the security chief? Welcome aboard, Ms. Osnapper. Behave yourself.
