Something of an odd title, but currently I am both two thirds and one half through writing Winter Wolves.

How can it be both?  Simply, I have written fourteen of the twenty one planned chapters, meaning that that part is two thirds complete.  Likewise I have written roughly half the planned words.

I am not too worried about the word count lagging behind – this is after all the rough draft and will undoubtedly expand during the rewrite.  The first three chapters, which have already been subject to a rewrite underwent this.  They roughly doubled in total during their rewrite, and now total around 17,000 words between them.  The subsequent ten written chapters in total only make around 20,000 words, but that will increase in length as they are written.

Plan now is to write the last seven chapter, hopefully over the next seven days, and bring the rough draft to a close.  Then the rewrite and polish can commence.
