So with all the word cutting and word adding I'm at 30000 words. That's 10000 to go to meet my goal. Now if I stick to the 5000 per day goal I'll be done by Thursday, but after the way I felt yesterday and this morning (like my head was going to explode) I've decided to take it easy and only do one chapter a day. That's 3000 per day. That' I know I can handle.
My prediction is first draft WIP complete by August 27th and ready for the big bad edit.
