Another good writing day on the train. This time I didn't miss my stop either coming or going.
All the cards are in play now, the main character knows what he's up against, and all he has to do is figure out what to do about it and how to convince everyone else to go along with it. I should be able to wrap this up in less than a thousand words. Which will give me a fighting chance to edit it below 7500.
Unfortunately, the timing is bad for critique group, because it's not going to be done before the next meeting and I'll be missing the one after that, so it might be almost two months until I get my crit. Oh well, sometimes things work out that way.
