Hi there. Yes, I'm back again.
The starting count today is 62,360. I am currently up to 62,844.
The really good news is that I've seen the break point, the moment when this novel is really over, with the exception of three tie up chapters, one from each POV. Right now I'm writing one of the most boring battle scenes I've ever done. I suspect it's boring because I've approached it wrong. Rewrites will correct that.
But I know that there will be some battle here, so I'll leave the one that's written for now, and work out the rest of it later. I just want the thing finished.
