4/21: 398 words. I realized yesterday and confirmed today that it’s taking more words to set up the climactic chapter that I’m working on than I had anticipated. As a result, I’m going to split it into two chapters rather than have one really long chapter toward the end of the book. That will help keep the pace that I’m establishing. But it also means that I’m one chapter further away from finishing than I’d been telling myself.

Update: I typed out another 297 words and finished the chapter.
