Wootable: 15,000 Words!

Thats a snazzy table.  
I got home from a work thing (you may have seen it in the news) and to detox, decided to do some cleanup on to-be posted proto-chapters.  Thats when I discovered I have pushed past 15,0000 words.  Thats a big deal for me -- who has a bad tendency to start a project and not finish.  I find myself looking forward to writing every night, even when I am exhausted.  Right now, the only thing keeping me from doing 1,000 words (at least) per night is the occasional work-trip or official dinner.

There are stacks of books I want to read, and a not-insignificant list of games I want to play (video, rpg, and board) -- but I find myself each night using my time to write about the exploits of Jarious and his buddies.

The best part is that I still have a lot I want to write about -- the plot is (mostly) formed in my head, and I am always thinking two or three chapters ahead.  That means I still have a lot of story to tell - and 15k isn't an end, its very much a beginning.  I hope.

C'mon, Chris.  Don't screw this up.

Still a lot of work to do...
