Today I crossed the 50,000 word mark. I really have nothing to say about it except I am happy that part is over. My story ended 12,000 words ago and I have been struggling to add additional words without editing. I did manage to come up with some tricks, all legal, and in some of my more chaotic moments of writing, I think I actually improved the story. Now comes the fun and hard part , turning this story into something worth reading.
