Just a quick update on book four in the Wanderer’s Odyssey series as it’s late here, but I think this is overdue. The wordcount for book four is now at 92,000 words, and that’s not counting the 15,000 words that I’ve written but which will actually be part of book five.
Progress has been slower than I’d like for the past few weeks, partly due to work being incredibly busy and partly because I wasn’t at all happy with one of the strands in the story. While necessary it felt as if it was just leading up to book five without adding much more to book four. I had a real breakthrough last week where that thread opened up a lot more and I found there was lots more to it, including a lot that is both specific to book four and drives the story forward within that book. Now that’s out of the way I’ve been hammering away again and I can’t wait to get back to the story tomorrow.
