Today was a good day. This weekend was a good weekend. I worked out what I hope is the last major plot point to pull the story together, introduced a new character I think the readers will like and cleaned up my outline and format considerably.
25K words puts me roughly 1/5 of the way done with the first draft. But I didn’t do much work on Warlord until a week or so ago. I had been focused on doing the marketing stuff for Warlock to try to get sales moving.
