7000 Word Challenge, UPDATE.
Done! And with about 6.5 hours to spare. I’m now at 60,028.
That was fun. I really got into a zone this morning, words shooting out of me like bullets from a tommy gun. I was able to maintain a nice momentum over both days, and it just really felt so, so good. The words are still first draft level stuff, of course, but at least they’re down there now, on the page, rather than in my head.
Think I deserve a drink now.
