A little reorganization around here
In response to some queries, I've added a new category to help people who share my interest in the Spanish Civil War.
I call it: "Spanish Civil War."
Speaking of which, I'm still right on schedule, producing 5,000 words a week. I don't have a projected deadline because I'm not sure how long the book will actually be. Unlike with a novel, I don't have a story arc that needs completing, I'm instead trying to pull pieces of information together and I often find something new when I'm looking up something else.
Which is to say, I keep hopping backwards and forwards, and also breaking up chapters as I get more information.
For example, I originally was going to have one chapter on foreign involvement. I now have five, each taking a deeper look at the issue.
I personally believe you need at least 40,000 words before you can call writing "a book." So it will be at least that long. The page count will be bigger because I will have to add a bibliography and index - two things that will I'm sure take time.
I'm also thinking of doing a sequel to The Vampires of Michigan as my next project (sorry Beowulf fans!) but we will see.
