Welcome to week seventeen.
Ah, well. Summer was good while it lasted!
Rag & Bones: Allies (Book Six) and Conflict (Book Seven)
This week’s task was to listen to these on my Kindle Fire (well, as far as I could get). I managed to finish Allies and begin Conflict (about 16% through the file). I intend to finish Conflict this week (probably Tue/Wed) and then let the two books rest until after the May Bank Holiday (next weekend), before a final read-through on my Kindle.
Nano Project (Book One)
I’ve continued editing this at roughly a chapter a day. I’m up to chapter twelve now. Once I’ve finished the listen-through of Conflict (above), I’ll finish the week by making this my main editing project. I won’t finish it, I’m sure, but then I can go back to the chapter a day the following week.
Fantasy Book 1
This is still coming along slowly and now stands at 34.75K words, so about 500 words a day this week. It’ll probably be less this week, with the Bank Holiday weekend, but that’s okay. This one’s not a priority at the moment.
Fantasy Book 2
The second fantasy project, which I haven’t really started writing (ahem!), has somehow managed to creep up to about 3.8K words. No idea how that happened.
As I’ve moved the two fantasy projects up into the main section now, there’s nothing to add here for this week. However, next week, I’m going to work on one, maybe two, box sets of R&B, and hopefully get them published. I’m definitely going to bundle Book One and Book Two. I might also do Three and Four.
