Added 4,296 words tonight for a total of 41,288 words. Also finished just a bit earlier so I can sleep. Heh. Most of the content tonight was a thorough explanation of nearly everything in the plot provided by the one character whose generation line bridges the two eras. And the rest of the verbiage sets the stage for the final showdown versus the menace buried beneath the city. So it's getting to the home stretch but I think there is still enough room left for one more interlude that I want to add, and I will do that another evening.
Lately, I've been using the free version of WordWeb while writing. Quite convenient and small for a dictionary/thesaurus utility.
