So you might remember that back on the 31st of October I made a post explaining why everything had been a wee bit quiet around here. You also might remember that in that post I said that I was going to have a bash at doing NaNoWriMo this year, and opined that this sounded a wee bit daft given the whole health situation.

So it turns out that I’m a stubborn bastard when I put my mind to it, and that I can in fact write 30k in a week if I want to (and I’ve got the time away from the dayjob).
I was aiming for 25,000. But then I hit that, and kept going, and then once I’d got to 30,000 there was more behind me than there was ahead of me. And then I hit 40,000 and at that point I was going to get to 50,000 if I had to pull an all-nighter to get there.
And… here we are.
The eagle-eyed among you might also have noticed that a pile of new chapter headers have appeared on the index page for Silver in the Ashes. Those chapters all exist thanks to this last month, and we’re not done with the story yet. So hang on tight – the ride’s only getting rougher for our heroic crew from hereon out.
