The End

Today I finished book ten in the griffin series. It’s the first instalment of the fourth trilogy, which I’ve retitled The Eastern Horizon (trilogy number four was originally going to be  called The Open Sky) . The book itself is called The Serpent’s Skull (this title may of course be changed later on, but for now that’s what it’s called), and it finished up at 266 pages and over 140,000 words – a new record for a first instalment to a trilogy for me.

With this one, I took the time to record the exact time and date that I started writing it, and then noted down the time and date that I finished it, so I can say that it took me exactly two months to write. I started it on the fourteenth of September, and finished it on the fourteenth of November. So I guess that’s a fair indication of about how long it takes me to write a book. A few people have asked, and there’s your answer.

I was going to say something more about the book itself, but I’m too exhausted right now, so I’ll just leave it here.

I’ve also just handed in my final assignment for university so, assuming all goes well, by the end of the year I’ll have my Master’s degree at last. Woo!
