I did 1731 words on TalysMana today, starting and finishing the next scene/chapter, and uploading it into the mailer.
For those of you who are history buffs, you’ll find my spontaneous, very brief rundown of the Peloponnesian War as part of a discussion between my MC and a guy I _think_ might be the hero. Maybe.
In any case, when I’m doing this dialogue, I’m recapping the Spartans and the Athenians and their nasty war from memory, writing at the speed of light without fact-checking, so I’m going to remind you—this is raw first draft. I do the majority of my fact-checking in revision.
If I got it wrong, PLEASE don’t send edit comments. I’ll look everything up before it goes to my agent.
Beyond that… well. The writing was a blast.
Hope yours was, too.
