I had to write a ton yesterday to help make up for the fact that I know I will have nearly no time today, due to a loooong day at work plus Monday being grocery day for the week and things like that.
I’m beginning to see now that not only will I not be finished with this story by the end of the month (all three of my books hover around 90K words, not 50) but I might not even be done by the end of the year–with four POV characters I’ve got a lot of ground to cover, and I feel like I’ve barely gotten started, even with nearly 40K in the bag. So we’re looking at maybe 110-120K to get the story told, minimum.
I’m confident, though. I’m going to power through. And why shouldn’t a double-romance story be longer?
