More writing time now has my daily total words written at 3140. And my updated total word count is 14095. I am stopping for the night. I need a break, to stretch, to do a little walking before work.
As a point of reference: the total word count goal for today is 10,000. Which means that I have a bank of 4095 words! Whew.
The story is still moving along. Yes, I have a few too many details and things will need to be edited out, but it is moving.
Oh, and so far I am still using contractions and numbering conventions. Which means so far, no word padding - just writing.
