    Dream Warrior First draft complete at 62,864 - 5.8k today

    Thats 23 days to write 62,864 words - an average of 2733 a day, a little bit down on my usual rate but still fairly respectable, and above stephen kings benchmark of 2k per day

    Next up a final final final edit of county lines and to publish that

    Finished the final final (etc) read through and check on county lines and wrote the sales blurb... that just needs to go through vellum and it'll be ready to drop.

    Then I read Broken Promises and Missing persons without editing getting back into that universe preparatory to writing Endangered species (unlike my other books these are written in multiple first person present tense)
