Hellooo 80,000

Just in case someone (other than me) is keeping track. The novel is now at exactly 77,318 words. Remember when it was 60,000 in its first draft? It's now almost at draft 3 and I think we will easily cross 80,000 words. Yay! And the extra words are helping to round it out, smooth out rough edges, build up the characters more fully. I am stoked.

Wow! Sounds terrific. I love your new header- is it a Vermeer?
