From the current WIP: “I hadn’t thought I’d be gone so long,” Carlos said, “or I would have worked a very different ward over this place. It kept people out, perhaps too well, but had no effect on filth or vermin. I had expected the house to have changed in two hundred and fifty years, but I foolishly left this room exactly as it was. And thus… it is exactly as it is.”
And the manuscript stands at 35,824 words with a NaNoCount of 18,776. It’s still slower than I like but that will have to be addressed in the revision.
