This marks the end of Chapter 10. (Hence the subject line.) Six more to go. :-)

(And yes, I said I'd be doing most of this sort of blogging via my web site, but we're still getting some bugs ironed out--which is really a disgusting metaphor, when you think about it--so I'm doing this one direct.)

Well, halfway by chapters (finished eight of sixteen). A hair under halfway by word count, but even if I can't make up a 1% shortfall over the next chapters, as long as it doesn't increase by too much, I'll be close enough to my target to be happy.

Pretty much where I need to be, in terms of word count ratio. Now if I can just maintain that for nine more chapters... :-}

33272 / 95000 words. 35% done!

And that marks the end of Chapter Six.

Or at least, tentatively. I'm far too tired to tell if tonight's words are actually any good...

27660 / 95000 words. 29% done!

This also represents the completion of chapters 1 through 5, just for the record.

Some of you will notice that my target has dropped from 100K to 95K. This is based entirely on where I am in the book so far (and honestly, I'll be happy with anything between 90 and 105K for this book). Here's hoping things stay more or less on-track; I really can't afford for this book to come in either grossly under or grossly over...

16545 / 100000 words. 17% done!

I really have no idea how long I can keep this rate up--but I'm certainly not going to complain about it as long as I can. ;-)

This is excellent, in that I'm making quick progress, which means the book is flowing.

But it's less good, in that I expected to be farther along in the outline--that is, in the plot itself--by the time I'd reached this word count.

Ah, well. It's still early yet--way too early to be worried about running over my intended total word count. (Which won't stop me from doing it, of course.)
