    That's double game first draft complete 60893 - 18 days start to finish average of 3382 words per day.

    Next up I either do some work on the nonfiction project or go back to Wild Justice or a bit of both. I'll make that decision tomorrow.

    So I'm back to working on Day of the Eagle (the BoB flying novel) - I doubt i'll finish it in one run, but ive been doing a bunch of research so I wanted to get stuff down while it was fresh. Total WC is 9889, session tonight about 2.5k …. Main protag is Lawrence 'Lucky' Lawson - following a court martial he's now been busted to P/O and posted to a spitfire squadron at Kenley (I'm calling the squadron 606, although in reality 606 Chiltern Aux was never formed in WW2... exploits are composite, but the Sqdn is loosely based on 222 ) - it's late June 1940 so the Storangriffe nuisance raids are underway and the Channel battle is beginning to heat up. Lucky and co (6 spits) have just gone toe to toe with 4 Me110 and 4Bf109 with the result of one 110 splashed and one 109 damaged to no friendly loss.

    The intention is to get this done in plenty of time so I can release it for the BoB anniversary in 2020. I've already had some local bookshops express an interest in stocking it, and some air museums that I've been talking to in the course of my research have also indicated they'd take copies - although as usual i'd expect the main sales to be ebook

    As with the Dusty Miller series where I tithe 5% of sale (which is about 10% of net) to Help for Heroes, I will be doing the same with the Lucky Lawson series of which this is the first, but with the money going to the RAF Benevolent Fund which looks after all RAF personnel both serving and past.

    20446 - another 3k or so - its now July 25th so the channel battles are at their height... Lucky and co have just engaged the world supply of Stukas (plus escorting 109s) attacking a convoy of colliers and their escorts - this was the last major convoy the navy tried to force through the channel until September 1940. (on a personal level Lucky has a flirty thing going with a Waaf intelligence officer... they haven't done anything about it, yet)
