It doesn’t matter how many words you write. I wrote mine this morning in a supermarket cafe – which meant I couldn’t stay there all day – and produced an outline of 616 words for my third book (while stepping back from my second).
I can use this as a guide to continue with my skeleton story to which I’ll also add my never-ending scrappy notes.
Talking of which, they are a pain but I’m glad I’ve got something extra with which to work. It’s a pity that they’re in such a mess.
