Well - that's the halfway point and I'm sitting pretty at 30000 words. Although the second half of the book isn't going to be easy to write and I've used up all the backstory I can possibly fit in.
I managed to get a thousand words out of my weekend though. My boiler decided that 4 am on a Sunday morning was the PERFECT time to spring a leak. I woke up to the sound of rain in my airing cupboard. Or, as the Tootsie's put it when they saw it in the morning - "Mummy, it's weeing!". Thankfully, very nice council repair mannie came with a replacement overflow/whatsit me bobbie/thingamijig and within ten minutes I had water again. My order of priority - flushing the loo, cup of tea, shower.
Sleep would have been nice - felt it this morning in my tai chi class. I was the lead corner and messed up twice by the end of the class....brain, feet, hands...present but not entirely correct.
All good fodder for my NaNovel, of course. And I even squeezed in an edit of what is now Chapter 19 of Hospital Corners. Peggy's second batch of diary entries. Now I'm onto my least favourite chapters involving the magazine interview with Esme's son...I foresee some severe cutting.
