I took a couple of days off mid-week — being well on target — but still managed to write 4,000 words and hit the 32,000 word target. A good work-rate but, more to the point, I’m feeling really comfortable with the quality of the writing. The reaction I’m getting to the samples (even from a certain person from Marks and Spencer 😉 ) is extremely encouraging and I’m probably more excited about Children of the Resolution than any other novel I’ve written.
I’m a little short on time and energy right now, so I’m going to leave it at that for today. I’d like to leave you with a favourite quote, however — something I’m especially reminded of as I work on Children of the Resolution:
“The reason one writes isn’t the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say. “
F. Scott Fitzgerald.
