Month: June 2013
Great start to the weekend and still on course for completing first draft by the end of this month. Chapter sixteen has just been put to bed and chapter seventeen feels like it will be a fun one to write.
I will hopefully be able to clean up the manuscript enough to allow me to enter the competition at the end of July. I am increasing my daily word count goal and meeting it successfully, so we’ll have to see if I can keep up the pressure. Gerald is having fun and the bad guy not so much LOL.
See you on the next update. Any readers out there are welcome to hop onto the train and give feedback.

I really want one of these in my garden 🙂

I have set myself a, probably, unrealistic deadline for Gerald but I am going to push as hard as I can to reach it. There is a competition I wish to enter and the last day for entry is 29 July 2013 which gives me around 7 weeks to finish the novel and get it into as polished a state as possible. Judging by the blurb about the competition Gerald is just what they are looking for and as the agency only holds a competition for humorous fiction once a year I am going to have to push myself to reach this year’s deadline.
I have put chapter 11 to bed and am half way through chapter 12 which brings me close to the halfway point in the novel. I will also be needing readers to jump aboard as I push for the finish line so if you are interested in becoming a reader for these final few weeks while I pull Gerald into shape please give me a shout.

Still going strong. Chapter nine has been put to bed and I’ve also nearly done with chapter ten. Vabalaz has just written himself into a fairly dodgy situation and now I need to figure out how to get him out of it. It probably won’t happen without the loss of a body part LOL.
