Well, it's about time! After hovering right at about 68,000 for awhile, I've finally gotten Bodacious Creed to 70,000 words. I have no excuse for the delays.
Actually, I do, and it's called stress. Rather than get into the details though, I'm happy to say that the book is rolling along again. Sometimes, a story gets to a point where a lot changes in one swoop, and the writer has to figure out how the story world is going to adjust. That's where this story is, but I press forward.
In any case, I estimate that the book will be about 120,000 words long, so at 70,000, I'm just 50,000 away! My life is busy, but I'm going to put in the effort to write at least 1,000 words per day. (This will likely speed up once I really get into the swing of it.)
