More Than Halfway
Yes, we are more than halfway through the novel. As of Tuesday night, we were at 24,208 words. At 40,000 words, we must type the words The End and duplicate it for the professor and the lucky people in our noveling group.
We have also found that noveling or writing in general for large amounts of time can make you feel insane. When you figure out something about your novel or the characters in your novel, you become very excited and want to share the news--which you really can't...because novels are not about REAL PEOPLE so even if you discover that he was secretly in love with her and has been for all this time, NO ONE CARES because he is not a real person. He is an imaginary person who ONLY YOU KNOW. So go back to your room and write.
