Exactly one year ago today, I began work on Book Two.
Today, Book Two surpassed 40,000 words.
If this trend continues, I should complete Book Two within the next four years. Which will mark a 100% improvement over the decade it took me to complete A Sea Sought in Song.
Of course, the last time around, my progress tracked an exponential curve as my ease with the material snowballed. So theoretically, I should keep getting faster and faster. However, factoring in likely dampeners such as an increasing number of offspring, I figure it’s safe to predict a more linear rate going forward.
