Recently, a thought came to me as I registered that In Pain and Blood on its own, had almost climbed to the same word count as The Rogue King Saga is as a whole. Which means they make a little over 612k together. Adding the completed stories of Dark One’s Mistress, Golden… Continue reading A Million Words
I didn’t think I would have 50k left of In Pain and Blood to work with by the time November rocked up and the first week will be the blog tour for Dark One’s Mistress. And yet, as you can probably guess, I will be participating in the National Novel Writing Month. I did plan… Continue reading Looks like I may be entering NaNoWriMo after all…
Otherwise known as the passing 75% mark… for the third time. So, we’ve leapt from the goal being 160k to 180k and maybe even beyond.

In fact, I’ve 11 completed chapters out of a grand total of 46… Go me… So, with the projected word count having jumped to 160k the last time… Continue reading Climbing to 80%

Then, it cruised it’s way through the forties and has parked itself at forty-five chapters. For now. You might have noticed by last Sunday’s post that the chapters… Continue reading Reaching 75%
