I have now officially started 'The Ancient', one of two story ideas I mentioned in a previous blog entry. This will be a fairly long story. Not only that, but it will have a plot where any changes later in the story will quite likely affect elements at the beginning, necessitating changes in those.
This means it would be foolhardy to post the story before it is complete, so I'll have to resist any temptation.
Given my (admittedly limited) experience so far, I would anticipate being able to write 15 - 20 thousand words per month. My guess for the length of 'The Ancient' would be 60 thousand words or more. So no updates for a while :-(
Somehow I doubt I will be able to resist the urge to post a blog entry every so often...
