I've been staying off the computer as much as possible, because the internet tends to suck me in and make me waste much time I should be spending writing. So far, it's been working. Here are the current In Memory Of stats:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
47,303 / 60,000
(78.8%)


I'm halfway through chapter 17. 18 and 19 are going to be killer. 18 because, while it's sticking to the same plot as the first draft, it's the emotional climax of the story, and I know I didn't write it all that well the first time. 19 because it's the plot climax, and I'm totally rewriting it because I decided it worked better all different. (Having your climax take place in a phone call is not good for the dramatics. :P )

No longer sure it's going to make 60,000 words. Checking... At this point in the story in the first draft, I had 39,169 words. So I've added a little more than 8000. Well, I've added a lot more than that, but I've also found a lot of extraneous bits to cut, and it balances out. I'd have to add another 3000 or so to bring the total up to 60,000. Granted, Ch. 19's going to be a lot longer, but still. I will be happy with 58,000.

There is much more to report on, but I must leave for work. I am working every day (including the weekend) this week. Such fun. :P

Hope you all are well!
