Novel update

Passed 91K on current novel. I had been thinking I'd be wrapped up by now, but that's not the case. I'm revising the estimated completed word count to be around 110K total, giving me another 20K left to write. Sigh. That's about four chapters worth, and that's about right, I think. And that pushes the completion date to somewhere around the end of February, I'd guess, at my current slow writing rate, instead of the end of January as I was hoping.

And I remember back last October before I started writing this book that I feared it was only novella-length. That was back before I knew anything but that a murder started the story and a murder ended it. Back before the characters took charge and the plot took off. Silly me.
