The part in blue is the 4841 words I've written since Sunday when I started that crazy novel challenge so many people are doing. matociquala was right: Those words sure do pile up quickly. And 17% more to go isn't much, right? I can finish this thing, right?

(BTW, 230K is what I think I'll need to finish this. I hope, however, to cut AT LEAST 30K out on the last pass. 200K is still monstrous, I know, but it is better than 300K, no?, which I was afraid the book was going to end up being.)
