Now that my big project at work is nearly complete, and everything’s winding down for Christmas, I’m planning to get a lot more written (as has hopefully been obvious over the last few days). My aim over the next few weeks is to try to get at least 2000 words per day written, every day, until I get my novel finished (probably in late January). At least 1000 words of that will have to be novel, but that will leave me with plenty of writing for here and Mindless Ones, mostly for the Doctor Who and Beach Boys posts. Once the novel’s finished, I’ll be announcing (and resuming) some other writing projects).
Next proper post should be Saturday, but for now here’s links.
