I'm at one of the last truly fun scenes in the book, the meeting between my smuggler and a prince of the line who is not exactly on the right side of the law either. It's a lot of fun to write. And I'm right out 3000 words for the day. Nice. Relaxing. I'm having a good time, and I think I'll for a couple thousand more tonight.
Yes, the book is falling short. I feared it would. If I can get it to about 70,000 in this run, I can start looking at places to expand when I work through the chapter listing. I already have an idea of places that I may have cut too short anyway.
Ah, nice to feel like I'm finally getting somewhere again.
