8500 words today. A good start, but not as much as I’d hoped. I hope to finish Jamaica Rum at around 60,000 words, and my goal is to see how quickly I can do so, and still write a good story.
The book itself is coming together. The main characters feel real. Cargrave is more roguish than my protagonists in Alien Empire and Blood on Bronze: Book of Vengeance, but that was inevitable since he willingly becomes a pirate. I’ve got one sea battle done and another on the way.
I should have another update in about 24 hours! Till then, sleep and more writing.
