(8/7/2016) I'm delighted that I have now passed the 60,000 word mark. It really has surprised me how much my original idea has evolved in to what it is now. No doubt I will have little sparks of imagination as I complete the final few chapters. After a short hiatus, I have really steamed ahead during the last week or so. I suppose that's the beauty of having a nice quiet house in which to do my writing in during the day.
