I just finished Part Four of the Shady Palms novel. Again, I have decided to push back the use of the title “Infestation”, this time for Part Five. Originally I was going to call Part Four “Infestation” but after reading over the log dark spiral I descended while writing, I have decided on calling it “Karma.”
With work at the hospital unusually slow for this time of year, I found myself with a few days off in a row. I set a goal for myself that I would write 10,000 words for the story in three days. So far I am on day two and about 7,200 words into meeting my goal. I’ve also just passed the 50,000 word mark for the total novel, so I’m as happy as a blood-drunk ghoul. Yay!
If I can keep up this pace I know for sure that I can complete the first draft of the novel by the end of October.
