Writing progress

New words written today (fiction): plus a few, minus a few
New words written today (non-fiction): 526
Total words in the story: 1554
Reason for stopping: I have almost finished the assignment. All it needs now is a final revision pass.

This morning I drove to the Corwen Welsh class, which means I also wrote a couple of hundred words of Wenglish in the class. Our tutor is determined that we will make the leap from learners to fluent speakers this year and she is experimenting with bringing someone in each lesson for us to interview. The mix of English and Welsh that I have scribbled down needs typing up and turning into proper Welsh before next week.

The afternoon was then spent writing the commentary that has to be handed in with the story. This is where we have to explain the story choices we made and the writing process. I have whittled the 526 words mentioned above down to 440. I still have to get rid of another 90 and then it's done.

Added a few minutes later. It's now within the word limit! Now so save it and back it up, then I'm stopping for today. :)
