Over 1,000 words today on chapter 1. I completed a difficult exposition-heavy scene and am satisfied with the expositionyness of it. Tomorrow I take my girls to the temple of Nebt-hut and they get to talk to a goddess and possibly throw down!
I’ll probably finish by Saturday. Friday if I shirk work, which I should not do…
I’m amazed at the ease of writing this chapter now that I know exactly what happens. Let’s hope this trend continues for the next six weeks. That, of course, depends on me knowing what happens in 5 other chapters, which could prove an issue.
In other news, one of my stories was rejected the other day and I’ve completely run out of markets for it. It’s a difficult match because it’s around 11,000 words and not many markets take stuff that long. It’s one of my older stories and there’s not much hope of making it shorter, so I suppose I’ll just have to trunk it or put it up on the blog or something. It makes me sad, as I absolutely love this story… sigh.
