97,494 words. 29 Chapters. 256 pages in Time Roman, 12 point, 1.5 spaced. 349 pages in Courier.
Deaths: More than I thought there would be, but less than there could. Sex scenes: Almost 1. My favorite charcter: Dave My favorite scene: I really like the last one. It's sweet. Most surprising scene to me: Allen and Dave after Thanksgiving. Words I think I over use: turned, spun, nodded, bit, and slightly. Why do I use them: The first two are dramatic. The last three are some moments. Hardest scene to write, intellectually: The shopping cart race or The Met. Toss up. Hardest scene to write, emotionally: Easy, Chapter 16. The whole thing.
Lost hours of sleep: Eh. Who cares?
The last chapter took long than I thought it would. When I thought I only had five pages left, it turned into 10. Maybe I didn't want to give it up. But I also wanted them to resolve things. Allen and Dave had some things to work though. Still do.
It's not high art, but I think it's fun. A good yarn, as they say.
