Since I haven’t posted in such a long time, I thought I’d provide an update on my progress on the sequel to Forest of the Mind.
As of today, I have just crossed the 30,000 word mark on Book 2. For comparison, Forest was a total of 157,000 words. Assuming a similar length, that puts me just under 20% of the way through. I am currently holding myself to a target of one new page (about 700 words) per day, hopefully most of them non-crappy words that I don’t have to re-do later. We’ll see how long that target stands up against the realities of life, but so far it’s been working out.
