I keep expecting other members of the Awesome Cabin to suddenly have a burst of inspriation and catch up with me (or just update their word count and surpass me while looking spectacular).
That being said, I wrote the final scene of my novel today. Now I'm going back over all of it and finding places where my description is shaky or I need to rewrite the dialogue. Before I start each change, I look at the word count and tell myself what I want the word count to be when I'm done.
I wrote almost a thousand words like that before my battery gave out and I had to go plug in. I figured while my battery was charging I should update my word count. (And yes, I chose to stop ot 34,200).
I feel bad, because I am so excited and inspired with A Killer Best Friend, not to mention it's sequel, The Lady Killer. I can't wait to write more of these stories.
When I reach my word goal (or the end of this read through) I'm going to start over again, and this time, I'm going to write a summery of each childhood story that I've shared. Some of them might show up in future books while others may never be seen again.
Now, I have something a little spoilery to talk about, so I'll add a cut here:
