50k is the new 80k

Well November isn’t even over yet and I’ve got 50,000 words written in my current manuscript. Unfortunately, only 13,000 of those words were written after November 1. But I’ve always been a manuscript half full kind of guy so that is just fine for me. I’m on track to finish the first draft by the end of the year and that will give me plenty of time to let it sit over the first of the year and come back at it with a fresh eye a while later. I guess that’s about all I can ask at this point, right?
