After my week's break, I'm at 35,000 words and counting. That's a third of the way in and, coincidentally, the end of part 1 of the story. Characters are in play and on the move and events are heading from bad to horrible. I'm really enjoying it and feel like I'm in the groove. Of course its only the first draft and much texture and colour must be added as well as perhaps giving my hero a bit more of a personality but all things will come.
So 35,000 words and just over a month in. I've averaged out at approximately a 1,000 words a days despite the surge over the holiday which really only compensated for the days I'd missed the target by a long way.
Still on target though for the 1st December finish. I only need to write approximately 900 a day to finish on that date so any more words above that are a serious win.
