At that point I took a break for lunch and to post updates, wound up getting a little tied up in chat too. But that's okay. I'm on track and going at a good speed. I want 20,000 by midnight tonight, goal of 40,000 or more, and will treat midnight pretty much as the middle and flip over toward "tie things up" at that point. This should leave me finishing tomorrow and editing Monday.

The Chosen is about a young man who gets conned by a cult leader into becoming the focus for all his magic -- and the one who actually carries out any of the black magic. World is contemporary-with-magic, a little lower tech than ours.

So that's what my 3 Day Novel is and while I hated it last night, I got in 6,000 words or so and am on track today liking it more the farther I get into it.

Thank you! I just updated again -- the book's going extremely well and my nap helped a lot. I didn't make my subgoal of 20k before midnight, but only went 2 hours over because of the nap. I'll be able to do this to length and still have most of Monday for final edits. I can't believe it's working this way.

I think my well trained unconscious really wants to win this time and give it the best book that I possibly can. I've spent as much time editing as writing and it hasn't broken the process.
