Progress post-NaNoWriMo

Progress has been on the slow side since NaNoWriMo ended, but I haven't stopped writing.  My goal on days that I write is a thousand words.  Over the weekend I got there.  Monday night I only got about halfway.

But I also am developing a better idea for where the novel is going.  Some things that I planned in my outline are going to work, and other things are being changed.  I've changed the order of events in this end section several times, trying to find something that feels right and maintains the pacing I want.

I've updated the meter in the sidebar to reflect the current word count: 81,297.  That's up 2k from the end of NaNoWriMo, at which point I had 79,293 words.  Not spectacular, by any means, but none too shabby, either.

I'd like to finish the novel by the end of 2012.  I doubt there is more than 15k left, so if I write a thousand words every day, I ought to get there -- and then I can focus on rewriting and revising (starting with finishing the job on the first novel) in early 2013!
