Owen’s Novel Report: The Fifty Mark

I’ve done it – I’ve actually made it halfway! Fifty events or chapters in the first draft, which is good going. However, I’ve found a way of doing a word count on my novel writing programme, which has revealed that I’ve written a lot – a hell of a lot! This means that I’ve got a lot of editing to do at the next draft!!

However, now I’m aiming to step it up a gear and write the next fifty events as soon as possible. As stated in the previous novel report, I’ve signed up for Jurgen Wolff’s ‘Breakthrough’ Strategy. I’ve already set out my goals – to write 500 to 1000 words per event and write the remainder over the next eight weeks (though, knowing me, I’ll probably write more per event than that! If I do and still write the fifty events, that’ll be a good result anyway!)

I’ll let you know how it’s going – the Breakthrough programme is already looking good! I also haven’t forgotten about the outtakes as well, it’s just that I have to prioritise the writing of the first draft at the moment. Watch this space!

Until the next time….

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
