I just finished the first full length draft of DEVIL IN THE DETAIL. Phew.
It’s been a monstrous effort, writing 40,000 words in just over two weeks. I will admit that I’ve been worried that I’ve over-stretched what was a novella into a novel but I think it works really well now, better than novella length.
Next things – got about thirty little changes to make, got the epilogue to write and then another draft. I hope to get through that lot in two and a half weeks and then take a break – I’ve been full on writing and plotting and editing and publicising since christmas and I need some time to focus.
Feel pleased with myself – brought it on early so I’ve bought myself some more editing time later on.
… And relax.
