Well, it was bound to happen. I missed my first update since dedicating every Monday-Wednesday-Friday to the blog. But those things are bound to happen from time to time. My reason is that I’m getting knee deep into my novel. As of last night I breached 30k words and I’m on the down slope to my goal of 50k.
So, the novel is coming along really well. Last night I had sat down to transcribe chapter 10 from my notebook. I knew it was going to need a lot of work to make things flow better so I began editing. The next thing I knew, two different scenes than I had written popped up and chapter 10 was entirely different. So what I had originally written for 10 was moved to 11 and 11 has been moved to 12.
I guess that is the creative process.
I’m going to keep cracking on the book. The second half is going to be a bit harder I think. It is when things are going to get a bit crazy. The mid point takes a very drastic shift in tone from the beginning, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to having my critique group get a hold of it.
