Writing Update—July 10, 2023

Another week. Another update.

Writing Challenge—Shut up and write 2023

Writing update, The House Book Two in the Spheres Series

The House, The Spheres Book Two

Hmm … I am so far behind that I don’t even want to think about it. To make it through, I have to adjust my goals and the way I track progress.

July / August Goal – 2nd revision completed by mid-August

I aim for 100k to 120k words in the final manuscript and have revised about 19k in three weeks. If I want to publish the book in December, I must complete the second revision in August. That leaves me four to six weeks. If I write six days a week, that is about 3,000 words a day.


I better start now, then!

Progress in numbers

The House, second revision, word count — 92,000
The House, second revision, words revised — 19,000
Word goal per week 18,000
Planned Release December 2023

The Fragments, The Spheres Book One – revised editions

More coming soon. This time for real!

New here?

New here? I am New Zealand-based writer, artist and maker Minu Freitag. I am working on the second book in a new series with an inventive take on alternate realities, arcane magic and dystopian futures, filled with unforgettable creatures and richly-imagined landscapes.
