I'm up to 19,000 words at the moment. Have finished typing up all my notes and will now have to do the hard yakka and write again, but at least I have a list of scenes to be developed.
Really finding this valuable. Being forced to dip in every day is keeping it alive for me. At the moment all the writing is rough as guts. It's just notes about what I need to develop so when I get to the end of this process I need to actually develop a proper draft.
