Last week I’d was up to 40481 words in the new book. Today, I’ve reached 51,050, so an increase of 10,569 over the week. Along the way, I’ve invented some new names for locations, introduced a few new characters to take part in the action, and hit on a very slightly different ending, which I hope will be a surprise for readers. Because of the nature of the story and the way I write, I’ve also done some new research, to make sure I’m sticking to the facts, where those are presented in the tale.
All in all, a very satisfactory week of writing.
