finishing today with 1884 words. up to 36,177 words total on REBEL ENGINEER with 1-2 chapters left. doubt i'll finish this week (short week thanks to mid-day school talk and con travel), but i'm going to try. maybe 4-6k words left.

really hoping the last few scenes go more smoothly now that i have the big battle out of the way. now it's just resolution & character stuff. no more nitpicky science details to worry about.

i have a feeling edits are not going to be TOO bad on this. the plot is solid. but i think i'll need to add more character development in post. i've been pretty light on that this draft.

late night working on REBEL ENGINEER. forced myself to edit all of yesterday's work & then write as much new as i could. 1908 total for the day.

i added about 800 words just editing yesterday's writing. and then another 1100 written after that. it's a slow process, but it's a process.

i really want to finish this before vacation, so i'll probably work on it over the weekend too (which i rarely do) so i can finish next week.

up to 34,300 words total.
