I recently completed the first 10,000 words of my ‘novel’ (cue: polite applause). Some might say that, now that I’ve reached that milestone, I could remove the single quotation marks away from that sentence, but where’s the fun in that?

Incidentally, I was recently told that with every 10,000 words you write of a novel, 10% of your ‘competition’ drops away. I can only logically conclude that, should I manage to write 100,000 words, I won’t have any competition left at all but will instead publish my own novel in an I Am Legend-type situation, with only a single canine companion left on earth to read it and a whole heap of zombies to then shred it with their alarmingly lupine teeth.

I wonder if zombies would have much use for ill-fitting fingerless gloves or crocheted coasters??
