Chapter 17 done!

It came out to 1664 words. This brings my total word count to 20,758, which is 97 pages. Wow!

This chapter was the last in that section. The next section is 7 chapters long I think.

Enough with the numbers already! Time to go and relax.

736 words.

And Kevin is about to discover that this bad situation is a whole lot worse than he thought.

Moving right along

610 words now. I like my Chapters to go over 1000 words, and this one will probably end up going well over that.

396 words now

And I'm slowly gaining momentum.

254 words in Chapter 17

I finally got a burst of energy and managed a page and a half. The fix worked. I'll keep at it and hopefully the words will continue to come.

Playing catch up

I took a few days off from writing. I have not had a writing spree like the last one before and needed to catch my breath.

Another reason I felt the story stop was a small flaw in the plot. This always brings me to a halt until I fix it. I now know what I need to do to fix the flaw and still move the story in the right direction.

Also, I got a rejection in the mail today for an article query I sent to Cat Fancy Magazine.
