DMOM: 1st draft is about half finished

The first draft of my new book, Dark Mage of Midgard, has passed the 50,000 word mark and is just about half finished. The summer writing intensive is really going well, and my plan to write at least 1000 words every day this month is adding up to some really satisfying chapters.

The work this year has been a bit more difficult than last year when I was finishing up Journey to Elara. I think this is because I’m right in the middle of the new book, as well as in the middle book of the trilogy, where the plot is really complex and everything is going badly for our heroes. I should get a big chunk of it done this summer though, and have a first draft by Christmas if things continue to go this well.
