Today is a fine US holiday. And so I took the day off to write. I just added over 6,000 words to the final big battle climax of my novel. And what a climax it is. It’s almost 50,000 words long. I still have another 5-10k to go.
Folks, this is longer than a lot of short novels.
I guess it would be more accurate to say I’m writing act 3. The book will probably exceed 200k words. So 60k isn’t too long for the final act.
I will now sigh in contentment.
I’m enjoying the heck out of writing this.
At the same time, I’m hoping to figure out how to make book three in this epic fantasy series shorter so I can get the story out to readers in a more timely manner. I might be able to write two normal sized novels instead of one monster. I will think hard about it.
In the meantime, I hope to wrap this rewrite of act 3 up over the next few days. And then it’s just line and copy edits.
