I think I'll do these weekly.
In the last week, I finished on chapter and started another. That means the week involved as much research as actual writing. The final word count for the week is 5400.
On the second, I was thinking about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), a challenge for aspiring writers to pound out a complete draft of a novel in just thirty days. There is no way I can finish my book in a month, but I'm shooting for two and a half chapters. That will put me past the halfway point. Then, I fix myself a nice dinner with a decent bottle of wine and get back to work.
