After a difficult last ditch effort I have made it to my self-imposed milestone of 35k! Nice. At the moment there is too much character and not enough horror. But that I think I can fix. Later.

I am still in a relative limbo. I am unsure where my novel is heading – don’t get me wrong, I know the ending and I have a plot. Only it has holes in it, holes that I was unable to shore up before starting this insane race. But not only am I in uncharted plot territory, I am also in uncharted novel writing territory, having ever attempted anything like this before. My passion is absent at the moment, instead replaced by a natural desire to compete. Let’s hope it is enough.
