I just hit 8000 words in the story I’m wiring and am getting close to the end. It will be around 10000 words in the end. A lot longer than I originally thought it would be. I’m happy with how the story is going, so it’s not a bad thing that it’s so much longer than I originally thought. The only downside is that it has pushed back my posting of it and me going back to editing From Within.

I’ve decided to post in as five 2000 word posts, probably daily, when I’ve finished it. Which should be this week. So hopefully it will be posted next week or the week after. I think that way it’s easily digestible.

I’m getting better at sticking to 500 words a day, even if it’s not everyday. I’m still aiming and getting better. Every day I don’t make the target feels like a waste. No matter what else I’m doing. I’ve got to take writing seriously. I find that if I start in the morning it gets done quicker, so most days I’m making it the first thing I do. 500 words isn’t much at all, so I’m hoping to build it up to 1000 in the coming months.

I just wanted to give a short update, and now I’m going back to finish Fallout 4, finally.

Thanks for reading,
