Well, writing is now underway on book 2 of the Kith and Kin series. I have worked out that I need to write 500 words per day, 5 days a week, if I want to have anything like a complete MS by this time next year. Book 1 took far too long and I do not wish to repeat that.
Five hundred words a day does not sound like very much and as an academic, I am sure that I averaged far more than that. But non-fiction words seem to flow onto the page so much more easily than fiction! Why is this? Does everybody have the same problem? Surely, inventing things ought to be easier than putting together a nuanced, fully referenced assessment of facts? Well, not for me, that’s for sure.
Merry, merry everyone.
