Countdown 22 Days (The "B" Beta Deadline)

I'm just noting a quick update for The "B" Beta Deadline and then getting right back to writing.  The writing spree is in high gear.  I'm exploiting it for all it's worth.

It's getting complicated too.  I'm writing multiple chapters at once.  It started with another night of waking up repeatedly to email myself bits on my phone.  Each round of emails was for a different chapter.  I've had to guesstimate the chapter numbers for where these will end up just so I could get them on the page before I forgot.  As such, I've not completed whole chapters, but have several partial chapters added.  

...Including the ending.  

Granted, I've had the rough idea of the ending in mind the whole time so that I was working towards that goal.  However, now I have exacting dialogue, specific gestures and actions, and detailed descriptions of the setting written out for parts of it.

It's getting extra exciting to work on it now.  The writing is coming as rapidly and as voraciously as the story's rush to its climax.  I hope it will be as thrilling to read as it is proving to be for me to write.

Current status includes:
22 days remaining until deadline
23 chapters completed
(chapter 24 mostly done, chapters 25, 36, 38, 39 & 40* partially done)
91,866 words
250 pages (single spaced)

*Estimated chapter numbers.

Thank you for indulging... (me).
