Passed 87k words tonight, and somewhere into chapter 20. I had originally planned for there to be 18 chapters, but the closer to the end I got, the longer the book became. I might be able to finish in 21, but 22 seems like a more realistic number now. I despair of getting this done by the end of weekend. But it is a *long* weekend, now isn't it? At the very least, I need to get this finished because I have an outline due on another project by end of month, and I don't want to just slap that out.
