Finally Kat gets some action.

I said to my partner tonight that I needed to do his computer work before I started typing up today's writing, because if I started transcribing tonight, I would have to keep writing the scene until Kat gets laid. Yes, that's the direction we're heading in at the moment. And it's only taken nearly 50,000 words to get there, and that includes skipping scenes.

I'm sure that this is the longest time that it has taken for any of my main characters to have sex. Usually they've jumped into bed a long time before now. But she had some issues to sort out first.

It's 10.46 pm and yet again I have to work tomorrow, but I'm determined to make that 50,000 words and beyond.

So currently Kat and Matt (man I've just realised that rhymes so I'm going to have to change his name) are at a teppanyaki restaurant, then they're going to the observatory for some stargazing. It's been a long time since I have eaten in a teppanyaki restaurant - I may have to put it on my own agenda soon next time I'm in Sydney.

Good luck with your book. Looks like you will make the Nano deadline!

I finished my novel yesterday but I was not participating in Nano. I knew I was clost to the end and somehow I was able to churn out 5000 words. Phew.

Will your novel be done at 50,000 or will you keep going?

It's a good feeling isn't it fredcq.

This one won't be done at 50,000. I'm going to have to keep writing to find out how it ends, because I have no idea.

Congratulations! What a huge accomplishment you've conquered. I see you as a major author in a few years. Stay diligent.
