Day 5. 34 pages, 16,368 words.
It’s another fairly busy one for me and they’re only getting crazier from now on. As are my days at work, so I haven’t had much of a chance to do anything. However, the writing is going well.
The first part of my book is set in Australia in the year 1990, and as such I thought it would be amusing to list a few of the curse-words I’ve put in so far.
As of 35 pages in, I have written:
Bloke: 14 times (this is not a curse, but a random Australianism that is very important to the characterisation of the, well, characters)
Fuck: 19 times
Shit: 6 times
Cunt: 2 times (not too many so far, actually)
I will probably pre-write a couple of random fact-based blog posts for the weekend, just for word-count purposes. Stay tuned.
