7000 Words Later – A Writing Update

I’m now 7000 words into Book 2 of ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles,’ tentatively titled ‘Skelly’s Tower.’ I’ve been knocking out 1000 words a day and, to date, it’s proving a lot easier to write than its predecessor. I like to think I’ve developed and improved as a writer which has helped. I also know the characters so much better now, it’s like slipping into a pair of old comfortable shoes. They are almost writing the book for me.

I resolved to document my progress on the blog just like I did for the first book, now available on Amazon in e book and paperback format. The plan is to have finished the first draft by the end of the year, with a view to publishing it in 2020. The plot is unfurling in my head like a red carpet as I write. I need to write to determine the way forward, it’s like driving through a heavy mist. The outline of the story emerges from the gloom as I type.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. They say it’s all about overcoming inertia on a sequel, and once you get going it typically flows well…

    No idea though, haven’t been there yet. 😀 Glad you’re making progress though. 🙂


  2. Most excellent! My wife Betsy, a writer and by far a tougher critic than me, has finished your book. She loved it! We have spent several happy discussions about the characters and plot. We look for to the next installment.
    She went to say have easily this would transfer to the big screen. I know, you don’t want to get ahead of yourself Steven, but if it ever comes to that, if you have any say in casting, I have considerable practice at being a drunken bum!
    Blessings to you and the fam,
