I've spent a good chunk of the past four days typing up the remaining chapters of MoulderingBook I'd handwritten — around 18K words in total, which takes me to the 40K overall total, which equates to more-or-less the mid-point of the book.

My fingers are now very tired.

I say it brings me more-or-less to the mid-point, because actually my mid-point should hit at 45K, which was a slight problem until my brain kicked in and I realised I need to write an extra couple of chapters prior to the mid-point so I can:

a) include another interaction between key characters, to develop their relationship and its arc, and

b) enhance my MC's strop to make it more pronounced, and hence make the contrast with what happens at the mid-point more effective.

Love it when my brain works.

I didn't do too much fiddling as I typed all that up, and I think the plan from here is to get writing, writing, writing again while the first 40K is fresh in my head. I'm feeling a need to get the story down on paper where I can see it clearly. Then I can spot where it needs work, and go back to tackle editing and rewriting further down the line.

That's the plan, anyway.

As ever, all terms and conditions are subject to change at the sniff of a writerly whim.
