still going

60,509 now and I think I can get more done by the end of the day. My personal goal is now 70k by the end of the month and I figure I've got a good shot.

Earlier tonight, I realized my book was a lot longer than I had realized, when a Google search told me that the average book has about 250 words per page. Word now says I have 116 pages, so that changes things quite a bit. I don't know if I really believe that, as trade paperbacks become more popular compared to mass market paperbacks, but I still think I'm way ahead of where I thought I was before.

And, maybe I can manage that 70k word goal. Even if I don't, I'm in much better shape than I thought I was 24 hours ago.
