I’ve added 15,000 new words in the last week, putting me at 29K earlier today. That’s a hot pace to try to keep up, but if I maintain it, The Starlight Dialogues will be finished, in first draft terms, in 4-5 weeks.

Needless to say it’s going well. I tried working out a more thorough outline before diving into this one and while there’s still a lot of gaps on a scene-by-scene basis it’s providing me with a lot of structure when it comes to keeping track of individual narrative threads. Building meaningful continuity over the course of 400 pages is the toughest and possibly defining aspect of writing a novel. With that under control, I’m feeling pretty good right now.
