When it rains, it pours. Finished Chapter 14 and wrote most of Chapter 15 this morning, and just knocked off all of Chapter 16 just now. Looks like the novel has been rescued by the stubbornness of my characters, their determination to do what they will.
Can’t say I’m complaining. I just broke the 40,000 word mark. With any luck I should pass the half way point of this novel by tomorrow’s end.
