Up to 32,000 words! The story is really starting to take shape, the characters are growing and changing from what they began as...and discovering some pretty shocking plot twists in the interim.
I'm definitely getting better and better at creating an actual cohesive story in the first draft, though I'm still not going back and editing or doing anything else to get bogged down in the details.
It's going to be a much easier time editing this draft, when I finally get to that stage, than any of the other novels I've done so far! My future self will be thanking me, that's for sure. :D
