The new book progresses well, now standing at 53,185, which is an additional 12,594 words since the last post here. As often happens when pantster writing, I was suddenly taken on a diversion by a couple of characters the day before yesterday. The developing plot has taken a slightly unexpected turn, but the story is much improved as a result. It’ll mean a delicate rewrite of a couple of earlier chapters, but the resulting tension and character development will make that well worth the time involved when I reach the editing stage. So, all continues in the right direction. I’ll continue to keep you informed of progress.
Make sure you read Blood Red Dust so you’re primed for this follow-up book, set some distance further into the future, when it appears.
My thanks to those who’ve already done this. I really appreciate your efforts.
