3016 / 50000
The prologue is written. However, those were 3000 easy words, because I did have a previous draft of the prologue. (In the spirit of an old-fashioned new draft, I typed it again, and mostly wrote sentences afresh. Except for the ritual text, which I did not rewrite.) Though I guess since the original version was only 2K words, I did do some new thinkaging.
Bah. Whatever. I'm underway. I will not trouble you with daily word count updates. I'll probably note the tens of thousands milestones, but no others.
