Today Dead Forsworn reached my goal of 80,000 words! There's still a couple chapters left of story and a great deal of editing to do, and with the planned combining of the two novels into one I suppose we could have declared an 80,000 words milestone 50,000 words ago, but still!
Things are coming together in an exciting way. :-)
It seems appropriate actually that the 80,000 word mark fell at the same moment as an important character death. No spoilers, though! You'll find out soon enough.
Thank you for all your support in this joint adventure!
