A Five and Four Zeroes

Actually it's 50,069 words in total, as of a few minutes ago. And the last 5000 or so were not in the novel that I finished the other day. Instead I wrote a new opening to the previous novel, which I hope will have moved it towards a submittable state; and a whole load of…

I’m glad Scrivener 3 is out, but could they have picked a worse month for it? The end of November, when a crazy percentage of users are crazily last-minute-typing into the app.
