I have only one chapter left before I’ve finished writing the crime novel I’ve been working on for over a year and a half.
The book will be twenty chapters and about 250 A4 pages long. I was aiming for 300 pages but I don’t think I can stretch the plot any more without filling it with a bunch of nonsense.
It is, in my opinion, the best novel I’ve written so far. There has been 7 over the years (plus a few I never finished) but this is the first one I think has an actual chance of finding a publisher.
I’m going to try and finish it in the next two weeks. It’s going to be a challenge because I’m working every single day from tomorrow to the 18th and there will probably be overtime too. But if I aim for one A4 page per day and write during my commute, I think I can pull it off.
