My current WIP feels like a whirlwind compared to my first finished novel. This has been a huge undertaking, basically because I knew next to nothing about the Byzantine Empire when I started.
Yeah, okay, I've taught about it, but my school's 700+ page history book condenses the Byzantine Empire into about three pages. Talk about shortchanging the Eastern Roman Empire (which is yet another example why I don't use textbooks).
So guess where I am at this current undertaking?
80,000 words as of tonight! Woot!
My goal was to be finished by May 1st, but the trip to D.C. and being sick for two weeks knocked me off the writing wagon. School gets out May 19th and I will be done by then.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
And yes, I skipped some more letters in the A-Z Challenge. Shhh!
