    11178 - 2k and a bit today - it felt like more , but that's because I did some rewriting and edits to other bits so I've probably written more like 3k

    13889 - roughly 2.5k tonight. I've got a full week off now so I should hit some serious writing. Cold Fury (now called Border Crossing) is due for release in December so I need to get county lines written and out the way so I can focus on editting

    30236 - not yet finished that's about 4k today. I did say between 30 and 40 k , although as ever my philosophy is that a stories as long as it is - that is how Mr Atkins was intended to be a 30k novella and wound up as a 70k book

    and the editors edit on Alpha dog done .. there wasn't much to change, … that's gone to my proof reader.

    All quiet - Its too early for the self edits on Mr Atkins, Double Trouble, or County lines I guess I better write something while I wait for manuscripts to come back :D

    I think I shall take a walk through the non fiction project I was working on before, see if can get that baby to first draft

    You're output is really good. Not just word counts, but number of consecutive works, too. If I've got a book in my head and can write 3k words every night consistently, but you've got several projects moving all at once. It's impressive.

    I do try to only work on one at once, but I try to stagger projects so ive always got something to work on while works are with an editor or resting or whatever.
