Flow at Last

Ever since I started this book, I’ve been a bit frustrated that a good day’s work was only 300-500 words. That’s builds up quite nicely, of courses, especially with short children’s stories, but I’ve written much faster in the past. And today I wrote just over 3,000 words. It’s partly that I’ve finished the historical research, so I know what was happening around my protagonist, and that’s a large part of the story, so it sort of flowed. I’ll finish it tomorrow and re-read it on Sunday and find out if it’s any good. It’s already 4,400 words, so it’ll probably want trimming. But I feel I’ve earned a glass of toffee rum.
