I had a good huge run today...5329 words worth of a chapter in which my MC FINALLY revealed his rescue plan to me. Now comes a few chapters of getting all of the players into place, getting him everything he needs...then the rescue can happen.
It won't be done by the end of 2018, but its pretty darn close compared to the end of November.
I'll update the final word count for December and the year at the end of my day tomorrow (maybe another chapter? *fingers crossed*)
And so far, only one Random Word is missing ;)
