Chapterly update (to the last update)

Chapter 6 done, which brings us to

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
44,245 / 95,000

I have a horrible feeling that this book is NOT going to stop at 95 000 words. I've got sixteen chapters planned, I've just done #6, I'm two chapters away from the halfway mark, and I'm pushing 47% - if the next two chapters are of anything like the average length I'll wind up with 50% of the chapters (as currently posited) bearing well in excess of half the words. I may have to revise my length estimate. I'll keep it at 95 000 for now, just to make myself feel like I've done more than I have [grin] but if the chapters remain of similar length to what's been happening so far, then, averaging out, I am now aiming for something more along the line of 118 000.

But we shall see.
