Word count Wednesday is back from holiday with a few extras - a chest, ear and throat infection, again.
The writing has not stopped. I did quite a lot on holiday. I finished chapter 10a, started 11a and also finished a short story. I am nearly half way with the novel and that means it will be time to start planning the alternative chapters - I had some ideas when I first started and I have been reading over them today. I also found a page from my notebook with the first line. October 2008. At the time I did not realise it would lead to a novel. I was still mourning over another novel attempt. I remember taking things slowly and I did not finish chapter one until mid January. Four thousand words in three months. But things are moving faster. Because I had a holiday last week - I have written over eight thousand in two weeks.
Overall writing count - 46,809.
Over the next week I hope to finish chapter 11a. Plan the final chapter, 12a and decide now the novel will end for this character.
