Now, have I finished the novel? No. I just beat the NaNo 50k in a month word challenge. The finishing part will come in the months ahead.
Here's where I stand as of 11/28/09:
- 52052 words. I'm guesstimating the first draft will top out at around 75-80k.
- At the start of Chapter XV (out of XXIII).
- Our hero and his intrepid crew have just been captured on board the archfiend's flagship while attempting a bold rescue. If I didn't know better, I'd say it was curtains for them.
