44,510 words as of now. I’m happy with this as it means I’m pushing myself further forward and I’ve actually done some work on it tonight after a week of dreams that have invariably ended up with Alethea Kontis giving me a lecture about the fact I’m ignoring it. Now don’t get me wrong I love Alethea – what’s not to love, she’s a sparkly princess with amazing writing skills and I seriously look up to her, but still, don’t think I ever want to see real life disappointed in me Alethea. My subconscious is bad enough. Although admittedly, the work has been on existing chapters rather than any new work, I still feel good about it. But I’ve felt the need to make sure the shorter chapters aren’t quite so short and have a bit more information in them. It actually made one chapter double inside.
It’s good to be back in the flow of the novel again and whilst I won’t get any time to work on it tomorrow as I am seeing an old friend I haven’t seen in nearly 4 years, and her girlfriend, I’m hoping Sunday will be productive.
Now if someone could just tell me what the strange intermittent beeping in my flat is that I thought was a smoke alarm and isn’t. I’d be grateful.
