Only a quick update today as I need to WRITE! And I have a short work day, as some Fridays, and while I might get some more words done in the late evening, I won’t be writing much this afternoon. Printing out the last 5 or 6 chapters to edit them, though, so technically, still working.

Two 5+k days makes a happy writer! See, this is how books are written! Well, by me at least. As I don’t publish six of them a year, you can easily see I can’t keep that speed up all the time, but I’m trying to make the best of it. I think I’ll be blasting right through to the very end of the book, which, depending on how long it will be, will either be a really long one, or maybe two. I don’t know. I hate to split them but at 150k / 600 pages it’s starting to get a liiiittle long fort the paperbacks. By the way, 250 words are one paperback page, if you wonder how we calculate that stuff.

Didn’t do much yesterday except write, swim, and look for a small fridge for my office online. And maybe a microwave. My office space comes with a shared kitchen but I like to be on my own, in my little writer cave here. Office, that something you want to know more about? Fishing for topics for these posts, shamelessly.
