Well, I'm right on track! I broke 25,000 words at around noon today, November 15. I'm now at 25,743 words, a little over 100 pages.
Amazingly, it feels like a real book. Not a terrible one, either. There's a kind of forward momentum I never experienced with my first book, which swallowed up so much of my life. And the experience of creating a fictional world is so different from writing memoir.
It also has the advantage of keeping me occupied while I wait for my "real" book to come out. It just hit me: January 1 is 6 weeks away!
