Oh gosh. This month has been just... well, I'd rather not talk about it.

In the meantime, the main project I was working on, which I was thinking for a while would barely hit 80k words in terms of length... looks like it's going to fall in the 90-95k range instead.

I've never considered myself a wordy writer. I mean, I'm not exactly concise either, but I'm too bored by my own infodumping for it to ever be a major problem for me even in my earlier drafts. I'm the kind of writer, in fact, who usually has to cycle back through my work in order to flesh out scenes. (I was actually worried since the genres I write in tend toward doorstopper lengths, i.e. over 100k!)

Haha, anyway, I thought I was starting to get a pretty good grasp of how "long" I write for any given project (despite being a pantser for the most part, I almost always start out with a good idea of the overall structure of a story, which in turn gives me a fairly decent estimate of scope), but it seems the longer the work gets, the less accurate my sense of length gets...
