46K, and countin’.
I’m not writing entirely consecutively, but the gaps are fairly narrow ones, usually spanning a few lines of dialog or a description, and I keep going back and filling in as I figure out what should go there. I suspect the book has two distinct halves–before and after they get to Anuket City–and I’ve now got the “before” half almost completely written–there’s only a few small bits to be slid in here and there, and the final wrap-up to get them back on the road and actually into Anuket City.
Plot eggs have been laid. We’ll see if any of ’em hatch.
