Word Goal: 10,001/50,000

Actual word count: 12,308

What happened today: Write-in day! Except I could have written much more if I’d actually written during the day, instead of waiting for the write-in that night.  Oh well.

Short Excerpt:

He flinches. He doesn’t like to think of my death. He doesn’t like it when I acknowledge my death, but I know it’s because we both know that it is the only way this whole mess can end.

His eyes shine with unshed tears.
