Finally hit 30,000 words tonight. Actually, more like 30,200. Considering how crazy life has been lately, I'm damned proud of that. And I loved the chapter I wrote to get me over that milemarker. It came out of nowhere. Often, the best ideas do. I sat down to write one type of chapter, and instead I wrote something completely different. I'm especially glad--since I'd been feeling that a couple of my recent chapters were not up to par--that this one hit the mark.
Tonight, I can go to bed feeling like I accomplished something. I'm already looking forward to writing the next 10,000 words. Here's hoping it takes me less time to make it from 30K to 40K than it did to make it from 20K to 30K!
