The first draft of the prequel is now complete. The final word count was about 31k. And today I managed over 6k words which is rather more than I intended to do in one day but when the mood strikes you, you have to go with it.
Now I’m into editing and some minor re-writing. The Hemingway program is actually very powerful and it really makes you think about how you should be writing the book in the first place. I guess it’s something to aim for, the hope that I can put a book into Hemingway and have it report, ‘Nope, nothing to see here.’
Also decided on a definitive title for the book. it will be named ‘Never Again.’ Which is a quote from one of the characters, not a plea after writing this one.
