Chapter 16 done, 77,905 total



There is no way this book can come in at only 80,000 words. I can't wrap it up in just 3,000. I'll either have to raise my goal again and do another length guesstimate or just keep going and try to wrap up the plot. More things keep happening in it that fit and belong in it but I may have to go back in and insert some foreshadowing about the hurricane. So far they have been seriously distracted from it. Maybe I'll start off at the top of the chapter with it getting their attention. They haven't exactly been paying attention to the news lately.

It's done when it's done
Just keep on writing - you can add that foreshadowing later - it's what I did a lot in Hunter I. One thing that one taught me is you cannot decide on an arbitrary number, it's just done when it's done. I'm sure Hunter 2 will pass 50K and keep rolling (Hunter 1 ended about 80K) but I still want to finish it in November.
