Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
THE BARD'S GIFT: Think of other ways to get the word out. Attended IndieReCon. Have some new ideas.
MAGE STORM: Send out three queries. Yes.
MAGIC AND POWER: Finish revisions. Then I'll probably look for a new reader or two. Yes.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: Wait for responses from beta readers. Waiting.
WEIRD OZ STORY: Get back to reading L. Frank Baum's Oz stories for inspiration. Not yet.
DREAMER'S ROSE: Start the rewrite. Not yet, but it's open and ready.
I finished my Bloodstone draft. It tipped the scales at 100,400, but it did swell a bit in rewrites.
I started the Darkstone draft and have got a bit more than 4,000 words written. I spent a lot of time at IndieReCon this last week. Time well spent. Thanks for the tip on the conference, Meredith.
This week, I plan on getting to 25,000 words written on Darkstone.
I'm not sure what to do with this. The first half of Darkstone is a bio of the antagonist and the last half is about the final battles for supremacy of the world. I talked to my wife about likeable MCs and I have to create some pathos with this character so that he isn't irretrievably evil until a certain point in the plot. I'll have to get it written and see how it turns out. I'm a bit anxious.
