I just did a quick count on what has been written so far, including today’s efforts so far, and the total has now passed 30,000 words, half way through chapter ten.

All in all around 2/5ths of a book, so still a fair way to go, but progress is being made at last.

Just came across a writing contest by Blizzard Entertainment that I am certainly going to have a go at.

Challenge is to write a 3k to 10K short story set in one of the universes from either their Warcraft, Starcraft or Diablo settings, due by April 12th.

Grand prize is a trip to Blizzard HQ to meet the staff and writers behind the lore in their games and books, plus a replica of the Frostmourne sword from the Warcraft setting, the sword of Athas the Lich King.
