I'm starting to settle back into the slightly slower novel_in_90 pace. Of course having tried for the past few weeks to push for more, 750 seems relatively easy, whereas when I did novel_in_90 before, it was rather more than the daily word count I always used to set myself, which was 400-500. These things are relative, it seems. I found the same with the photography. The first year I did the photo a week group, it seemed a strain to remember to come up with a picture every week, but after 3 months of doing a photo a day, one a week is a breeze.

Of course writing at this speed, I know that what I end up with won't be a novel, it will be a nearly novel length outline, but I think that writing fast will give it the sort of pace I want for a fantasy thriller.

Oh, and I did work out the other day how it will end. What I thought was the middle is in fact the climax. Making the end work will be challenging but interesting. :)
