The rough draft of Tears of the Mountain is coming along at a fair pace – already passed 6000 words and I haven’t quite finished the couple of pages of rough synopsis that it has come from.
It has been bubbling along quite nicely and I was surprised at how much has been done already when I did a word count.
The part written was meant to only be an introduction, get a feel for the setting and story, but it has expanded more than I expected – and it will only do so more when I get around to doing the rewrite.
In its current form it is fairly basic – descriptions, conversations, plot. On past performance, when I do do the rewrite and fleshing out those 6K will be out to 10K or more.
Time to get back to writing now though – have more of the rough draft that needs writing.
