WYRDWOOD - "Grandfather knows best"

Next chapter up for those who are following the tale of Emily Feylock and the Skinny Twig Man.

On the subject of writing, cracking on at quite a pace with the latest story. Since the weekend I've been managing to get 3,000 to 5,000 words down a day, some achievement for me. That's something like a chapter, a chapter and a bit, a day. Sitting currently around 43,000 words.

Sorry I didn’t comment on this sooner, it’s been a busy busy week. But yeah, really splendid writing as usual, I can’t wait to see it published! You’re telling me you knock out a chapter a day? Holly Mackerel Mr. Bling, that’s quite impressive--especially since your writing style is so vivid and tightly composed. I’m lucky if I scribble a couple pages a day. What's the secret?

JP, you really don't need to apologise for not commenting matey! :-D Yeah, I get about 3k words written a day at the moment, but that'll change when the FC production schedule goes crazy. It's not always that easy to get so much done.

As for a vivid and well composed writing style, God bless you Justin. But the version you see there is edited, do bear in mind. The 3k I'm turning out at the minute are probably FULL of typos, repetition and bad grammar! :-D
