It’s been another day of highs and lows, as the reality of the task ahead of me sinks in.
99 chapters, according to the plan. 99. That’s a lot of writing.
I started today focusing on the second Princess, Ophelia, who needs to find a way of fighting back against the forces of occupation.
The fight for the castle was basically over before it started. A people who had grown fat and lazy, in a realm where there’d been no fighting or any discord for many lifetimes.
It seemed to me that this is possible any time in the world we live in, that a nation with a vastly superior army could just come and take over without anything more than a whimper.
And there are nations out there that actively and subtlety seek world domination. Perhaps it might happen before we realise what’s happening.
But back in fantasy land, Princess Ophelia is on the move, and on reconnaissance, and the question is, will she be caught?
For the statisticians, 2,594 words written today for a running total of 24,992, just short of half way.
I think this story is going to be much longer than 50,000 words.
