Weekly Writing Progress & Other Business #10

I'm writing the next book in The Alchemancer series. It's called The Nullification Engine and should be out soon. As a way to keep readers updated on my progress and also so I can gauge the same, each week I take a look at my current writing progress and report it here. Also, I discuss some other areas revolving around the business side of things.

Maps

This past week I received the first draft of the complete world map for the World of Uhl. Uhl is the world I set my novels in. It looks really nice and can't wait to reveal it and make general use of it in my books and elsewhere. I need to go through it with a fine-toothed comb. Just from glancing at it I see it has some errors and omissions, but nothing too major.

Blogging

This post is my 554th since I started blogging every day.

Writing Progress

Now, to the good stuff. This past week I wrote 5,658 words, bringing me up to a total of 62,161 or 40.1% complete. I've got the expected total word count at 155,000 (31 chapters * 20 pages/chapter * 250 words/page), but I'm fairly certain one of those chapters is going to get combined into the chapter I'm working on right now so the finishing line is going to get a little closer by default.

Here's the data and that's it from me.
