4/27: 245 words. Progress has been slow, but regular in April. Of the last 21 days, I have written in 16 of them. I have only averaged about 430 words per day, but that has allowed me to accumulate nearly 7,000 words during that time.

More significantly, I have taken Walls Ascending over the 20,000 word mark in this most recent chapter. So I’ll just keep accumulating words. If I can maintain this rate of production, I’ll finish Walls Ascending by the end of August. Then I’ll have to decide whether to publish it at the end of 2021 or beginning of 2022. Not a bad problem to have.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
