It’s taken me a year, whilst juggling raising a baby, working freelance and attending the New Writing South Creative Writing Program, but my first draft is complete!
I tried to aim to write 500 words a day, but some weeks I found that other commitments and writing submissions got in the way.
The first draft comes in at around 75 thousand words, but it’s going to need a lot of work to get into shape. It’s split into five acts and roughly 100 chapters. I was inspired by Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner to write short, short chapters!
