Wordcount Wednesday

I'm about two thirds of the way through Numb. That's a guess, not a certainty. This week, I added another 4,549 words, bringing the grand total to 52,310. This has me a bit nervous. Three years ago, I started writing a story for NaNoWriMo, one set in the same universe as this book. I made it to 50,000 words (barely) to win the month, but the story then petered out and I've never gone back to it.

Now I'm not saying that I'll be abandoning this story any time soon. But again, I wish I had made it further.

Worse, I know I'm not going to be making a lot of headway through the rest of June. Starting tomorrow, I'll be attending the Minnesota South District Convention in St. Paul for three days. A week after that, I'll be in Madison to perform a wedding for one of Jill's friends. And a week after that, it's a week at a cabin up north in Minnesota with my family.

Maybe I need to kick it into gear, see if I can't get this done before we head up north. We'll have to see.

Way to go on getting past 50,000 words! What's your goal for the novel?

Also, congrats on the "Top Blogger Award" for the May CSFF Tour---it's a privilege to share it with you!
