5/1: 556 words. Early in the writing of Forging Bonds, I planned to finish it by late May. Barring some catastrophe, I’ll be a couple weeks ahead of schedule when I finish this later in the week. And I can tell you that I’m already enjoying the tone of the final chapter in the trilogy.

Update: I wrote another 485 words this afternoon and brought myself to nearly the mid-point of the chapter (at least structurally, if not literally).
