I'm making a point of not keeping too close track of wordcounts on Shattered Pillars, because I decided it was making me neurotic: I can be just a little too obsessive. I'm just going to write this damned book, the way I used to, back before I started obsessing about deadlines.
But I have started stitching the fragmentary scenes at the end of what I had written into continuous fiction! And found some earlier problems and fixed them. And have a bunch of brilliant ideas for later on in the book. So I'm pretty damned happy, frankly.
