I’m doing a little better with the leg, and even though I can’t sit or stand for a long time, I got some chores done today. I also rested more during the evening, so I did not write as much as I wanted to.
But, write I did (also, check out the NY Times Pulp Fiction Writing Contest – curious of any opinions anyone might want to forward).
Chapter 21 will go live Tuesday morning in a password-protected post.
Here’s my progress so far:
I wrote 2,044 words this evening, which gives me a cumulative total of 36,712 words (per Scrivener). For the math challenged, that’s 13,288 words to go . . . but I will likely come to a stop a bit over the arbitrary 50,000 words. Hmmm . . . perhaps I should try to end it on 50k on the nose. We’ll see.
I hope them who be reading it are enjoying it at least half as much as I am enjoying writing it.
Here’s my usual ending to these posts.
For them interested in using my spreadsheet, a previous post explains it and provides links for getting either a copy of the Google Docs version, or downloading the Excel Spreadsheet version. That post is HERE.
Anyone wanting to read the novel, please shoot me an e-mail requesting the password, or leave a comment below to that effect.
As a point of information, asking for the password does not mean I will subscribe, or even read, your blog. It just means you get the password. Perhaps I might get curious and check you out, perhaps not.
One other thing.
Last year I did a precis . . . I know some people like the precis. I did it last year because I stopped writing for a few months, and then I was not writing regularly.
This puppy is going to be finished before the end of the month. I won’t have time to write a precis, and the timeframe is short enough to perhaps make its absence irrelevant. If not . . . sorry.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
