So far so good...

70,000 words.
70,000 words.
It gives me a buzz every time I say it. Because that’s 70,000 words more than I had this time last year.
I was looking for a bit of motivation to see me through to the finish line when I stumbled upon the Novel Race on Kate Harrison’s website.
It worked.
Since emailing Kate I have written another 5,000 words.
75,000 words.
If I keep it up I could have the first draft finished in 5 weeks time!
And then, as I know from all the ‘how to write a book’ books I have read, the hard work really starts. Editing! Bring it on…

Thanks Liz!

Just being part of this community of writers is motivating in itself.

It's great having like-minded people to chat to....I think my friends are getting bored of me going on about my novel!
