At five o’clock last Wedsnesday (yup, about this time last week) I began the first draft of my next WIP – a story for children which I’d planned to be around 20,000 words long.
And I’m very happy to say that, about half an hour ago, I wrote this:

Which means that, yes, I’ve finished. It’s running, at a guess, at around 17,000 words, which I think is about right. Once it’s up and typed and altered and stuff I reckon (read: hope) that it’ll be nearer the 20k mark. All in all, not bad for a week’s work I’d say. Let’s just hope it’s good!
