I was really hoping my new ms would make it to 60,000 words, but sometimes you just can't force it. When the story starts to really flow I get to a point where I can't push it to go any further. I've completed the ms at 50,000 and now it's time to go back and read through the whole thing to make sure it all goes together and make sense. Fun stuff. That's what I'll be doing for the rest of the week.
