Writing The Wedding that Changed Everything: Week Seven

 
I kept a little diary while writing my eighth book, The Wedding That Changed Everything, which I'll be sharing on the blog during the run up to publication.

This week hasn't been quite as productive as I'd hoped, with a weekly word count of 5,319. It's only half of my word count goal for the week, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it too much. I'm still 5,000-and-odd words closer to finishing the first draft, so I'm happy with that and it could be far worse.

 
I do need to pull my socks up over the next couple of weeks though, as we're going away for a little holiday soon, which means no writing time as I want to completely relax with my family and have some fun. Once we get back, there will only be just over a week before the kids are back in school, and a week and a half after that will be the deadline for this book and I need to have another read-through-and-tinker before it gets sent off to my editor.

Love happens when you least expect it…

Emily Atkinson stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago! She’s fed up of dating frogs in order to track down her very own Prince Charming, despite the best efforts of her matchmaking best friend…

But now she’s been invited to the wedding of the year at the enchanting Durban Castle, and perhaps bumping into a knight in shining armour isn’t as far away as she thought!

Will Emily survive the wedding and walk away an unscathed singleton – or finally find her own happily-ever-after?
