...is actually going well. I've almost at the end of chapter two, which means that if I complete it by Sunday, I will have got chapters one and two done within one week. This would bode very well for me making my Flump deadline, but unfortunately it doesn't really count because all of chapter one and the majority of chapter two were first written when I had the initial idea for You Don't Know Jack about three years ago. So all I've been doing this past week is ripping the two chapters apart, taking out old story/character elements, adding in new ones, editing my so-three-years-ago writing style, and generally revamping them according to the new storyline. From now on I'm actually writing fresh new words, so I imagine my progress will slow up a bit.
Thanks to everybody who left comments of encouragement and inspiration. I'm sure lots of writers manage to write a chapter a week, and I think a part of me knows I could do it if I work hard enough, but it still seems like a scary mountain to climb. I suppose all I can do is write and see...
Had a regular antenatal checkup today and all is absolutely tip-top with Flump. He/she was cartwheeling about while the doctor was feeling my stomach and tracking Flump's heartbeat, and even with all her years of experience the doc seemed surprised by just how active my progeny is.
