After the record breaking November, I wrote a couple of thousand words at the beginning of this month and then stuck. One reason for the slight stuckness is that I'm not quite sure how much more End Of The Middle to put in. I'm sure I could keep inventing Humorous Stuff, but I don't want this to get too long. My novel drafts have always expanded in the past when I revise, so this is a serious danger, especially as the WIP is a bit Description Lite at the moment and many of the scenes are not as grounded as I would like them to be. Correcting this will result in more words, I'm sure. HOwever, if I write The End, then I'll know how many words I have to play with and can then finesse the join between the first part of the story and the final part to arrive at a suitable total.
 I have already written more this December than I did in December 03, so I'm not too concerned, especially as I feel I'm girding up my loins for the final sprint to the end.
