What 50 Pages Look Like

I got to page 50, fyi. Reached it, looked around, spent a few paragraphs there, then looked ahead in hopes of finding page 51.

You see, the chapter’s not done yet, so I can’t just stop mid-sentence on page 50 and curl up under the desk to take a nap.

Still working! Every time I work on this chapter I go back to the first page and move forward from there. Momentum, I tell myself. It’s pretty annoying.

  1. Go you! But I get it. I’m rounding the corner on my word count target, but the story isn’t over. Stupid misleading word count target.
