Done, 50,167 words and within the 30 days. It wasn’t however smooth writing as the graphs show. I started well and tailed off in the middle, as can be seen, forcing a few longer than planned writing sessions towards the end.
I didn’t plan anything prior to starting, other than I had a premise, the day magic came to the world. I used a lot more characters than I have in previous books, which was a challenge to not lose them in all the words. There were bits I didn’t like and when I go back to it some bits will be re-written I imagine, but that is the advantage of writing a quick draft. There are some bits that worked really well. I planned this to be a trilogy from the beginning and I surprised myself in all the subplots that manifested themselves. It’s in a good place to pick up and take forward, however now its time to pick back up the book I’ve written already and see where it leads me. Exciting times.
