18,000

Phew. 4000 words later and I’m over 18,000. Still 1872 words behind target, but that’s manageable. Thank goodness for that – I woke up this morning with little clue what was going to happen next. I had a beginning and ending, but the middle act turned out to be made of smoke when I tried to get a grip on it. Happily a walk around town produced a few ideas. And if all else fails, there’s always Raymond Chandler’s indispensable advice from last year:

When in doubt, have two guys come through the door with guns.

Now to wash up, put the shower doors back on and ponder whether it’s too late to watch the recorded Torchwood…Don’t think it is 🙂
