Milestone looming

Only 5,000 words to go until I'm at the halfway stage. Am aiming for 100,000 words which I'll then rabidly edit and crop once the first draft is typed up. I know I then need to elaborate in many areas, which will bring the word count back up again. I also need to do some final research, and interview local police - offers, anyone?

I typed up a diabolical little number today, which is coming together nicely. He's such a show off.

I had a bit of an epiphany on my original novel today. It's been sitting in the drawer for years now, waiting for the next step. Think I've got it (which will please certain people). Something to move onto once the current one is finished.


  1. Planning ahead is good. Finish that first one, send it out, then crack on.

    If you need anything clarifying, I know stuff about the police and you know my email.

  2. Cheers Col. I will very likely be in touch over the next few weeks. Thanks for your continued support.

  3. Kee going Lily, and all the very best to you!!
    Regards, David.

  4. If only I could spell!!!!!

    KEEP going Lily.......
