Writing — getting close to the end of the story

I just did another 1,650 words of “The Graveyard Shift”, covering three more parts, through part 13. The parts are getting shorter because the pace of the story is now picking up. I think I will end up finishing the story this weekend and it will end up somewhere right around 15,000 words, like I originally thought. (Right now it stands at 12,750.)
