Bookkeeping

Words: 1100 or so on Scardown
Reason for stopping: Finished very emotional scene. Realized next scene only exists to draw out climax of book and tossed it. Now looking for the way to give the end of the book the right wallop to the temple, and bring it to a satisfying resolution. Only a few plot threads left to tie up, but they have to come together in a way that ties *both* books down, and together.

The good news: 86K. I think I'll get, oh, 100K out of it. Since Hammered runs around 105K, that makes me very, very happy indeed.

Also, killing characters wears me out.
