The Countdown Begins

So happy May Day. It's May 1, and the official word count on the first draft is 60,000. My goal is 80,000 by May 31st. So I have thirty days to write 20,000 words. That's less than a k a day. If I could average a k a day, I'd either get done 10 days early, or else I'd end up with a much longer book, around 90,000 words, which might be more sellable. Plotwise, everything is getting lined up for the big climax. Another couple thousand words, and it's all about watching the dominoes fall. I can't wait to see how the big climax plays out. I'm hoping for a thrilling ride.
