Two Pages (05/11/16)

I shifted to a lower gear this morning, five pages against the previous sessions of ten, although I might get back into it this evening.  I'm now into the second act, which is where I really start to put my protagonist through the wringer.

Lawful Evil is going well, and am now some 250 pages into the first draft.  I've been doing a lot more reading the last few days, and have ploughed through quite a … Continue reading Two Pages (16/10/16)
