That’s the number of new words managed yesterday. Not exactly breaking any records, but then I suppose it’s not too bad, given that I’ve not touched this book for two and a half months. It takes me a little while to get to know the characters again, wake them up from the old subconscious and embarrass them into doing their thing.

And I did have to go through everything I’d written before on this thing, including all the plans, and do a bit of an edit. But it’s still 2,000 words less than my daily target. Perhaps today will be better. Today I’ll settle for an even 2,500. Build up gradually and all that (and yes, I know Lynn writes more words than that while brushing her teeth, but we can’t all be Wonder Woman).
