Day 2

Second day of the year wasn’t as profitable as the first, as relatives were visiting the state and in the afternoon we were out for a meal, not getting home until just before midnight.  A few hours of writing time were lost there.

Still, managed around 2500 more words in the morning, pushing the total to around 6500 for the first two days of the year, so we are still on overall schedule.

Part of that was the continuing serialised story of Cara’s Choice, a bit more was continued work on The Bronze Man short story, and around 1000 words was on the new, untitled, project (which is over 5000 words into the draft plot now).  The way The Bronze Man is going – over 6000 words already – I fell it is more likely to end up a Novella than a Short Story when it is finished and then subsequently polished


Arise Sir Terry

Some great news to come out of the New Years Honours lists, with Terry Pratchett now Sir Terry Pratchett, having been knighted for services to literature.

Pratchett is best know for his Discworld series, of which there have been 36 books since 1983 –  a phenomenal rate of writing.

He is also one of my favourite authors, in my top three without question.

Sadly he has recently been diagnosed with a very rare form of early onset Alzheimers., but he says he still has a couple of books in him.
