Added about 700 words as well as finishing proof edit of 'The Enscorcelled Maid'. Now work on something else and come back to it fresh and proofread in a few months. But no gap ever between proofread and then edit in annotations.

Back on track with my 1000 word days now and past the halfway mark. I've done a lot of shuffling around and cutting from my plan and should finish by November. Still my goal to start something new for NaNoWriMo.

Finally finished part 2 of 3. Another 40,000 words or so and I can wrap things up.  ;D

After a long time without writing, last week I put pen to paper and got around 1100 words in. One week later, only 200 (or a single page). Then yesterday I sit down pretty much the whole day and got ~2100 in to compensate.
That was like 9 pages in 9 hours, about 1 hour per page. Oof. Let's see if I can do it again... but faster, preferably  ::)
Slow and steady wins the race.

Last week I wrote a little over 7k words, which makes a 1k per day average. For someone years without doing it I think it's very good haha.

On the other hand, on this week, nothing. Zero. Nada. Hopefully I'll get at least some pages down, hopefully around 3k.
Slow and steady wins the race.

A personal best of 4000 words today.

Looking like I'll be finished with the WIP by the end of next week.

Then proof read (on an ereader via Calibre is best), edit in annotations, re-write.
I'm not doing much actually fresh writing though have a a couple of new chapters to add to my WIP started in 1991.

Aren't you sick of it by now? Do you manage to keep it fresh in your motivation?

This particular WIP is going straight in the trunk. I did a lot of experimenting with it and it hasn't always gone well. Plan is to look back in a year and see what can be salvaged.

I'd hardly looked at it since 1996 and in the last six years worked on over 20 novels. So it's quite fresh. I'd forgotten some of the aspects of the story.
One of the motivating factors is that unlike my Talents Universe and Celtic Otherworld series there is no contact with Earth or current Politics.

Always a good plan to set a story aside for a few months at least after edit/proof/writing. Twenty years is a bit excessive, but till recently I couldn't see what to do with the old story.

I've finished revision 6 draft of 'Seven Talismans'. It's about 54,620 words total and suitable for a younger people (10+ ?) as well as adults. I'm hoping only more revision. I'll send it now to Beta Readers. In reality it's had very many more revisions than 6 as it started as a Novelization of a computer game in 1991. I think all the "video game action" flavoured bits are now gone. Most of the next book in the series was written by 1996. I'll look at that next!

Blitzed through a full morning's writing to reach 120,200 total. And that is a wrap.  ;D

I already know what my next project will be, but I'm going to take a fortnight off. Maybe write some shorts to flush out the system. But first, I'm off to have a lie down.
