End of Part Two

Y'all, I have finally reached the end of part two of my book. From here, I expect true smooth sailing because the rest of it is mostly reshuffling/ editing what I already have written in draft three. Part Two was daunting to write; it's a largely transitional part of the book and I gave up on it a few times and got stuck on it and full-on hated it...

But on to Part Three!

So, first, full doc stats:
Words: 39, 707
Pages: 141

Part Two stats:
Chapters: From Chapter 12 to 22, so ten chapters
Words: Part Two has 19,703 words
Pages: Part Two has 68 pages

First line of Part Two:
"He looks horrific. Are thee sure he's not ill?"
(I know, it's two lines. The first line would look weird on its own, no?)

Last line of Part Two:
He didn't give a hint to the steward as to whether he would seriously consider buying the estate or not, but he did like the ring of it: Keegan of Banner's Edge, Bannersley.



By the way, instead of titling this book The Sailor's Daughters (ugh), with help from Karla and Krystal of my writing group, I have a new title. It's in the last line.

Can't guess? The Keegans of Banner's Edge.

Go Consonants power!

  3. Woohoo! Congrats! <3

    I hope you don't mind, but I think your sentence "Are thee sure he's not ill?" would sound better as: "Art thou sure he is not ill?"
    I don't use contractions with this style of writing, but that's just me. ;)

    What do you think?

    1. Hi Elizabeth! The character speaking that line is a Quaker and they used "thee" and "thou," with thee as the singular, apparently.
