Running The Asset

Word Count Update

I’m still working on the final sequence for Act I in Running The Asset. It’s an emotionally difficult section, and they’re stuck on a ledge three floors up, and Elle is scared of heights… . And the fire I mentioned yesterday is now a raging inferno–Adam has a fear of fire. So, it’s been fun trying to get them back on solid ground and safe-ish.

On to today’s update: I added 728 words, taking the manuscript to a total of 22,919 words.

My writing plan for tomorrow is to finish Act I, block out the first scene of Act II(a) and get cracking on the writing of that.

Thanks for joining me on this adventure! Stay safe.

    ‘Chase your characters up a tree and then set fire to it.’ That’s the easy bit, isn’t it? 🤣

    1. Yes!!! They had to climb down the outside of the building to get back in. Elle wants to go back inside, and Adam really wants to stay outside. It’s insane what we do to ourselves as writers, isn’t it!

        You bet!

    2. Mano, getting them down is a bloody nightmare for sure. 😳
