November word count:

Beginning: 76 K
Ending: 92K

Though it isn’t completed, I am satisfied with the word count. I broke through several levels of angst, head banging, and general malaise to get to this point. A monumental achievement, I assure you.

First paragraph. Tell me if it is a hooker, er, um, hooks you.

His lazy strides across the mall caught my attention. Like he had time to kill and everyone else could wait at his leisure. Most galling was how people moved out of his way without disruption. No glares. No commotion.

I don’t think the word count will go to 100K but if it does, I will have enough storyline and volume to fiddle with now.
