All told, the last week saw me writing more than 5,500 words. That includes a 1,000 word flash fiction story for Chuck Wendig’s weekly writing prompt. This is the sort of pace I’d like to keep going. It would get me to my tentative goal of 75,000 words in 15-20 weeks. I think that’s a realistic mark to shoot for – an achievable amount of output and an easily tolerable amount of time.
The short story got a surprisingly strong reaction. More than one person said they thought it would make a good situation for a novel, and I believe I agree. So, I may just have something to write once The Apprentice is completed.
