I think I'm at the halfway point of Dweller in the Tower. I'd estimated it would be about a 6000 word story, the average length of an old pulp yarn, and I'm just over the 3000 word mark. I still don't like some of it but I'm determined not to edit until I have a completed first draft. Still following the synopsis pretty closely, though I can see the end changing a bit. I'm just up to the big action scene of the story so of course I'm looking forward to that. I always enjoy writing a fight scene. If possible I like to do those scenes from start to finish with no interruption so I can get the immediacy of the thing down.
