Just getting this in as of 11:55 PM on Nov. 22nd. 43273 words.
I've actually slowed down this weekend after the blind rush of Friday. I am within 6,800 words of getting the 50,000 word count. It's the novel itself. I feel myself bogging down into fractal detail right now, creating a situation where I'm trying to leave clues for the solution I've plotted at the end... so I need to pick this up and get it going into the next set of chapters. Grrr.
