The good part of this is that I'm clearly writing too much, which is helpful because that means that the editing process will be mostly trimming, which is way easier than generating missing material. The bad part is that I seem to have slightly less control over the process than I anticipated, and I think I need to lash myself a bit more strongly to my outline if I'm going to avoid writing WAY too much, since I'm trying to operate in a timely fashion, and I only have time for a LITTLE too much--say, 150,000 words or so.
Anyway, the house is free of people for the next three solid days, and this was a 4,000-word day all by itself. At this rate, I can probably hit another 20,000 by the weekend. Won't that be cool?
