Pushed past the 50,000 word mark on my Noir Fairy Tale tonight. I’m starting to have a feeling I can see the end of the story is within reach. The next section will see the detective discover what’s going on so then it’s only a short way to trying to foil the plot and the ensuing confrontation. There’s going to be a fair amount to do when I get to the second draft. Lots of the descriptions are pretty light on detail at the moment and there are whole sections where I skip over dialogue that can shed light on the characters but that wasn’t needed to drive the plot forward. If I’d known this was going to turn out to be a novel and not a short story I’d probably never have started it.
