60,000 and counting

Today on the train to work I passed the 60,000 words mark. I’m up to scene 43 of the 91 listed in my plotting spreadsheet. (It has all the scenes in the novel in the left hand column, and columns D to Q let me note which plot lines each scene advances. Did I mention that I’m an obsessive planner?)

Yipes! 43 out of 91 doesn’t sound far enough. Nonetheless, I’m pretty sure I’m more than halfway through. Some short scenes coming up?
