50,000 words in

It feels good.
I'm not sure if I'm getting better or worse. If my style is changing or my characters are. Their voices have changed but that was supposed to happen.
I've actually written 51,387. I think I'm only three chapters from the end. I reckon it's going to be 56,000 words. I'll be 24,000 short. That means I'll have lots of extra descriptive words to put in afterwards. I think I'll enjoy it. I'm not sure I'll find that many though. How hard is it to find those extra words which make it up to the size which publishers accept as a novel?
