900 words yesterday, for a total of 21,870. This book may get finished someday. Actually, this is a complete rewrite. I wrote the book several years ago. I sent it to some friends that read it and liked it, or so they said. The book then went off to a professional editor, a woman that edits a scifi/fantasy magazine in Australia. Her critique was a fifteen page assault on the gaps in the story and shortcomings in my writing. She was not harsh, but honest. Unable to face reality, I hid the manuscript and critique away for a year. Recently, I took them both out and read the review carefully. This led to me deciding a complete rewrite was needed. Thus began Pursuit of the Prophet 2.0. The goal is 100,000 words, give or take a few thousand.
