Milestone 70,000

Yay! I just wrote word number 70,549 on my new novel, ALMA. It's getting there. I'm in the penultimate chapters now! Conflict coming to a head! Haunting memories facing my heroine! Family members attempting to communicate and failing miserably! But loving each other nonetheless! More exclamation points! I'm putting them here so I'm not tempted to put them in the novel!

Back to work...

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember the first book -- you were trying desperately to bring it DOWN to 100k.

Now it seems to be seeking its own level all by itself.

Can't wait to read it.

Soarry did I say desperately?

I meant gracefully, skillfully, and always of course with great _tact_.

Thanks, guys!

Desperate was the word for that novel-slimming exercise...

I don't know what to call this, though. I'm still having fun. The results are not exactly what I want but I do see evidence of growth so that's good.
