Still on pace. I write the 2000 words early in the day, wait a few hours, then drive out to the Badlands and write on the second book (no specific word goal.)
I'm almost exactly halfway through both books.
Pretty crazy thing to do and I doubt I'll ever do it again. It's very hard to wrench my headspace away from the first book into the second book. Half the time I find myself writing 1st person, even when I remind myself not to.
But so far, the ideas have come, and the word flow is solid, and I like what's happening with both books.
I'm trying to finish them before I hear back from the publisher, because no matter what the verdict it, it is likely to throw me off my stride.
