19068 / 70000 words. 27% done!
Unfortunately, I am not 27% done according to the outline. Heck, I still have a few hundred words left to write on this chapter. (Though at least I get to write the book’s first gruesome, bloody death in those few hundred words.)
Now, there’s still plenty of time for it to balance out; later chapters could be shorter than I anticipated, just as this one’s been a lot longer. But if not, the book’s going to wind up longer than I’d planned for. Not a disaster–it was a pretty short book to start with–but it’ll throw my schedule off a bit.
