Three days of hard work

28/12/2013 11:29


…I may have spent the last three days writing. I’ve met my Nano wordcount (28,000) and am due to exceed it today, which is frustrating. Well, ok, it’s nice. But why could I not have produced that sort of wordcount in that time back in November?

I’m re-writing Shadows, and my strategy of actually plotting things out does seem to be working. I’m on chapter 7 now, where my plot sort of faltered, and I’m now actually having to think about what I’m writing. I’m also at the point where the relationship between Eli and Mike gets complicated, and that’s making me think too. Ho hum.

I’m going to get some time off for the next few days, as we’re down in Devon at the in-laws for New Year – and I refuse to take my laptop. I may take my sewing, but at least I am likely to talk while I sew. 


That’s all, folks. Happy New Year if I don’t get on here before the 1st!
