Novel Progress: 110,000 Words

Another 10,000 words accomplished.

I'm not going to go into the usual analysis here, but I am glad to say that the end is almost in sight. I'm almost done with chapter 12. The way my stepsheet outline currently reads, the final chapter will be around chapter 15 or 16.

I am a little worried about the length, though. I've heard that publishers tend to look for books between 80,000 and 120,000 words, and this first draft might end up breaking 120,000 words. But I know the first part of the book needs a major overhaul, and then other rewriting might lead to some cuts. In the end, though, I'll just let the book finish finding its own natural length.

I'm completely impressed, my stuff usually comes in at barely the minimum. Can't wait to read it...
I used to write to barely the minimum. Now I'm having a hard time keeping short stories at the appropriate length.
Always flood or famine, eh?
