I’ve just gotten back home from a few days in a lovely little cottage on the vineyard slopes of the Moselle, where I spent my time cooking, chopping wood and writing in front of the fireplace. Grim February now stands at 50 handwritten pages – which is probably about 17,500 words written this month.

I’m currently finishing Chapter Fifteen and have now definitely entered the final act of the novel. So things are heating up, both in the story and with my goal of trying to finish the novel this month.
