wayfaring wordhack

Yes, I have...

...been writing and working on my trilogy, that is. Not quickly, not daily, but working. Just thought I'd share that since I finished a chapter.

That puts me at 88,552 words for book one, and only 10 chapters to go to wrap it up.

If I don't add a POV.

Yes, I already have 5, but I have another character hinting (she hasn't demanded yet) that she needs to have her say. I don't believe her, but she is tempting. Very tempting. She makes a good case.

But if I give in and accord her even four or five chapters, that is going to bump my wordcount about 12K-15K over the "acceptable" limit for a fantasy debut.

Conundrums, conundrums.

Still, I will indulge and write a scene from her POV. Worst case scenario, it will help me further understand her character.
