I crossed the 50K word mark a week in advance of the deadline though I still haven’t finished the story. One more chapter, maybe two, and an epilogue. Period. I’m estimating 60,000 to 65,000 words as the final final count. Regardless, year five has been a success. I feel much better about this one than I did last year’s.

On a completely unrelated note, my gallery gets a fair amount of comment spam I have to go in and delete every now and again. These are almost universally from .cn addresses advertising two things at once. As such, tonight I received a comment spam (sadly, now deleted) which tied the concept of Tr/ama/dol together with Castlevania and my first thought on reading it was, Wow, that sounds awesome!
