Indeed, lots o smileys!

Me, I just have word count to report. Around 3500, which is a lot for me in a week.

I'm at 4384 for the month. (8000 goal)
So, right on schedule.

Yeah.

I usually post my word count on facebook, since that is where I see most of my friends nowadays. But, since I'm glad to see the group I started still going (makes me feel I've had at least one good idea), I'll add my stats here:

Currently, I have 208,204 words (900 manuscript pages, before chapter-spacing format is calculated), and am at the battle just before the climactic battle. My goal is to end this monstrosity before the end of the month.

I think Meredith is the busiest Hatracker still active on here. [Big Grin]

Wrote new words in my WIP every day in the last week. I have to write at least 1/2 hour every day. Haven't missed a day (and that 1/2 hour usually stretches itself into an hour or two). I'm about 50,000 words into it. According to my outline, I'm a little aver halfway there.

I found a characterization for an important supporting character that I really like. She was just a talking plot point before (and she was a he), but I figured out who she is and made her female, which has open up a rich vein of interaction with my MC. So, happy to get that important piece of the story locked down.
