How the words gather.

You don't realise when you do a little at a time, how much you do. I found that out last year, when I decided to gather Chronicles together and it hit me tonight again. All I do is about 1,000 to 1,500 words a week for the serial, but over the 14 weeks that is almost 20K LOL

  1. Hello Alan. I love this. Never really stopped to think about it. Usually busy being upset at what I haven't written! Cheryl
