It’s a wrap! I’m more than halfway done with the last chapter of A Study In Magic that I’d planned to write for NaNoWriMo.
In a span of 28 days, I’ve written 36,400 words for A Study In Magic, the Application. This translates to eight chapters, with an average chapter about 4,550 words.

As of today, I’ve managed to type 16,800 or so words, 8,000 of them for A Study In Magic. Not the 23,333 words I’m supposed to be at but close enough. I’ve churned 3,500 fully usable yesterday and 1,800 today. I call that a victory.

I’m using the time to finish up writing A Study in Magic … The remaining 40,000 words of it. Will I accomplish it? Maybe, but oh, I do hope. I’m flush with ideas, more than is wise to enter the final draft, I think. Editing shall be an interesting challenge.
Thank you so much for staying with the sprawling story, everyone!
