Only five more days to go, I really want to get started! In the meantime I have continued with some preparation, expanding the back story for the main character. I now know how he gets to where he is at the start of the book and it's helped to refine the character plan I have so far.
Probably the biggest issue I have left is the final battle. While I have sketched out the encounter and how it will flow, I'm not really happy with it. Still I have a few days to sort it out before I have to start writing proper.
For anyone who is curious about the single link I have for Littleport Life, it's a magazine that I help out with. Sometimes it's nice to do something that isn't work-related :-)
