263 pages into Book 2 of Conquerors of K’Tara, and 100,268 words. Still a little bit to go before this chapter of the story is done and gets to its conclusion. But it feels good to pass the 100K mark, not because of its size, but because it means I am over 60% done, though it is entirely possible I will reach the end of this book with fewer words– or with more if the story will demand it, to be told right.
