novel progress report

Just a quick bop up to the office to back up what I've done so far and drop an update here.

Empire Ship progress:

. Word count up to 118,400 from last update of 111,200: a gain of more than 7000 words. Cool! Uncomfortably, though, this means the novel will be longer than planned....
. Page count up to 385 from last update of 364.
. Lotsa mood music assistance; I'll post it all later.
. Estimated final word count: 125,000 - 130,000.

I hope to finish tomorrow. Then on to revision of the last scenes. Wow, so close!

Chris
