Writing Retreat Redux

Thursday, 10 August 2017

In an effort to get this book in your hands as soon as I can, I have been on another little writing retreat in Donegal where I managed to knock out 11,000 words in 2.5 days. And that's WITH a sofa nap every day. I don't know why I am still surprised that having no access to the internet or Twitter is astonishingly good for getting stuff written that is more interesting than memes but I am. Not that I am not fascinating on Twitter. Follow me on Twitter. 


So here's an update in pictures. I have now finished Claudius's reign, and if you know your Romans you'll know that this was a dramatic bit, but it means I've just got a few more years of Agrippina being alive before I have to write her extremely dramatic death scenes. If I'm feeling confident enough I might pop another WIP extract up soon!



The current goal is to have a complete scrappy draft by the end of August and a slightly better draft with Scott for him to edit by the end of September so we're getting closer, I promise!
