Just broke 13,000 words, starting page 49.
Which means I’ve officially exceeded my previous longest fiction length by just over 150% (the previous record holder was 32 pages) with a fair bit of outlined (very roughly) scenes and quite a bit of plot to go.
Still not sure if this is turning into a novella, short novel, or full novel. We’ll see. But, I’m slowing the pacing a bit right now.
And for some reason, I’m handwriting the whole first draft. Go figure.
