I am so close to the halfway mark I can almost smell it... Am definitely going to crack the 50,000 word point today. Definitely!
Spent yesterday working on the novel and have finished my chapter with the nightmare family get-together which was thoroughly enjoyable to write. Lots of shouting, flouncing about and bitchy looks. (Just like tea-time in this very house most nights of the week, in fact.) Am just about to get stuck into a dramatic development that follows on from this, a big turning point in the plot. Oooohhh....exciting.
Anyway, listen out for a loud cheer when I reach 50,000 words later on. Getting past the midway point of a novel always feels such an achievement.
