Writing progress

I was beginning to think that the WIP had stalled, then unexpectedly today I wrote 1477 words in a rapid burst. Novel stats now look like this:

Chapter 6 (nearly complete): 3065 words

Lenient word count for the month: 3994
(Not as good as I'd hoped and way off target, but better than last year, so perhaps January is just not a good month for me and writing.)

Total novel MS so far: 27,481 words

Or as the graph shows, the first draft is 27% complete.
