Novel Progress

I announce most of my novel progress through twitter but thought I’d do an actual quick post summarizing things.

I am writing the second draft of the novel, the middle bits having turned out to be a complete rewrite with the beginning and ending looking like they will stay close to the original draft. I’m on Chapter 18 of what will be twenty seven or twenty eight chapters and sitting at 70 000 words. I want to end up around one hundred thousand words but we’ll see, it looks like it might go a little long.

I think I will probably start shopping it around in early July and begin work on the second novel.
