So while I’m sat in the cinema waiting for Doctor Strange to start, I thought I’d post a little (not to mention well overdue) update.
Predictably I’ve been slack at posting – as I’ve said before, I’ve always struggled to make writing a spectator sport but if anyone has any suggestions…!
Anyway, we’re approaching the halfway mark in the month-long writing challenge and I’m pleased to report that on Thursday I hit the 50,000 word mark. Bad news was it coincided with me spotting a block in the story but a bit of distance and lubrication over the weekend (God bless Arthur Guinness!) has helped unlock it so I’m all set to kick back in first thing tomorrow. I’m well into the 3rd Act now so am quietly confident I’ll have finished the first draft by the end of the coming week…
Then it’s back to finalising the next phase of edits on The Demon Inside – and a huge thanks to all my amazing beta-readers who’ve given me valuable feedback so far.
That’s all for now – the film’s about to start….
