42k, second draft!

I hit 42k in my second draft last night! Thereby moving 50k by the end of this month to be within reach. I work a lot, the rest of this week, so its doubtful....but maybe, juuuuuust maybe.

Then I have a whole week off to grind in. Hooray!

I would not have made it this far if i hadn't buckled down on Sunday night. Being stuck in the 30ks was interminable, there was so much fixing to do. There's even more fixing up ahead -- the 1st draft signposts get farther apart, and the writing on them more blurry as i continue -- but it's OK. I'm definitely in a huge chunk in, and if not halfway yet, on the verge of being there.
