Rolling down the hill towards the end

I've had a rather productive week! In total, since Monday, I have written 12280 words - a quarter of my current book. If I could write like this all the time, I'd be able to get a first draft done in a month. But I'm not going to get my hopes up; I know I need fallow periods between the times when the words won't stop flowing.

Hopefully, the flow will continue long enough for me to have the book off to my editor by the end of this month. This is a good stage of the book for me. I've got over the end-of-chapter-three hurdle and waded through the chpaters-seven-and-eight-bog. Now I'm rolling down the hill towards the end.



Kind of like this picture of my eldest rolling down the hill in Greenwich Park. Once you get started you just can't stop, even if it's a bumpy ride along the way!

Fingers crossed.

But you are right, rolling down hill can be bumpy!

I know that hill well (that is one brave child you have there!).
Well done on your wordcount - from someone about to start Ch. 7, I'm pleased to hear it might eventually be downhill for me too :-)

That's a lot of words, Fiona!
Congrats.
And it's lovely to think it's a quarter of the book already!!

It was nice to have a rush of words after three weeks of being totally stuck!
