Added 35 000 words to the novel this month! Ten thousand of those words were done this week and now there’s only three chapters left. Overall I’m pleased with progress. My only real concern is the novel is running a little longer than I had intended… there will be much cutting in the next draft.
This has been an interesting experience, writing from an outline. Hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing but I’ve learned how to build a more usable outline (and I have done so — the next novel is already plotted out, in a much more sensible and useful manner).
Anyways, that’s it. Off to do some research.
