Writing on a novel Characterization World Building Relevant research
As for me.
Last Week's Goals:
MAGE STORM:Wait for a reply to my follow-up query to the agent with a request. I heard back--rejection. Now I need to decide what to do next.
MAGIC AND POWER: Send out three more queries. Yes.
THE SHAMAN'S CURSE: It'll be interesting to see what happens to sales now that the price has gone up (but not very high). Still selling well--but only on Amazon.
DREAMER'S ROSE: Pause, for now. Easy one.
THE IGNORED PROPHECY: Let this rest for a week or so. Rest period over. I've started the next pass.
WEIRD OZ: Let the new ideas ferment a bit. Another easy one.
Meant to say this last week. Yes indeed I have been woking on a novel; two actually.
The first is Above My Pay Grade. I found a few things in the proof edition so I made those corrections and sent in the file again.
And I have been working on a new novel. An idea hit me about two weeks ago and I had to at least start it. The first chapter is 2,200 words and the second is close to 7,000 and I'm about 1,000 words into the third.
It started out steampunk with wizardry but as I worked on the first chapter it I decided it needed dragons too So a fusion of steampunk and dragonpunk? With a side of wizards.
The story takes place just as we enter WWI and follows a new wizard recruit. I decided that it will follow real history even if everything is steam powered, they have airships instead of biplanes and dragons with human "pilots". Not sure of a title yet, but I will have to come up with at least a working one soon.
