The End

I finished Loss of Separation in room 332 of the Novotel, Liverpool, on the afternoon of Friday, 29th October. Well, I say ‘finished’, but now the real work begins. There are lots of XXXXXXs and instances of [insert more here], not to mention the sections that I know need to be fixed, the characters who have not enjoyed enough screen time (or had too much), problems with timelines and inconsistencies in the plot. I’ve come to the conclusion that novel writing is not so much about telling stories as solving problems. 

I wish there was an app for that…

The total word count (pre-edits), for anybody interested in these things, is around 85,000.

Listened to: Rain Tree Crow
