I started early this morning and was delighted to make it over the next boundary 38 000 …. I am trying to reach 40,000 before Saturday morning!

I feel as if my writing is going in SLOW motion – maybe because I am desperately trying to reach the next boundary of 40,000 words! However, speed isn’t everything, there is a tortoise and a hare somewhere that can vouch for that!

I am delighted to say that I was visited by muse. I was beginning to get a little more of the factual information I was writing and low and behold… I created a WHOLE new chapter/ concept for the book.

I am still convinced it doesnt have enough meat (sizzle) to stretch it much over 50,000 which makes it a bit short for a book manuscript. There appears to be half missing! Hmmmmmm not sure how to solve this one – will have to see how much more is lost in the edit!

    • Thanks – I am trying… ex-long distance runner – coming in for the final few circuits of the Rugby Pitch. I have it all planned and aim to be close to 50K by Monday. Maybe 47000 or something. Especially as I have a busy work week next week.
      This will be some achievement, don’t think I have ever written so much!
