One Really Really Big Explosion – Check

Something must have gotten into me today because I managed to get over 2800 words down and finish Chapter 17.  Didn’t really plan on doing that, but this chapter was one long action scene and I didn’t want to break it up over two days… so I just stuck in the chair until it was finished…

And man, it ended with the proverbial BANG.  ‘Bang’ doesn’t really do it justice… we’re not talking nuclear strike here, but windows were broken, you know?  Dogs howling, raining pebbles somewhere a few miles away… that kind of explosion.  The kind that kids AND adults really appreciate in a good movie.

So, not much more to say today other than the baddies will be giving the hero a little more respect in the upcoming chapters.  Oh, they’ll still be trying to catch him and do him harm, but they’re definitely on guard.

Not sure if I could crank out 2500+ words per day every day, but I sure would like to try… maybe I’ll still shoot for 2000 per day at first…?

Today’s scorecard and Progress Meter say it all – WOO and HOO – 45% done!
