60,000 reasons to celebrate


Yay! I wrote 50,000 words of a novel in November 2004, and one way and another, it got stuck there. By March 2005 it was still only 54,500, and I stopped again.

Well since late September I’ve been trying to write every day, and I’ve usually manged 200 words or so. At the weekend I finally reached 60,000 words.

There’s still a long way to go, but at least it’s moving, and I’ve found a technique to keep moving.
