This week it’s all about Kennedy #2. I know the series name will be The Sylphline Realm, but I don’t have a specific title. I was thinking of doing a play on the situations, but I’m piddling. I really do need covers and names now that I keep track of word count so I’ll work on them. Currently doing one story one week, then shifting to another the next week, and back.
Word count I started the day with: 68,896. Worked for 20 minutes or so. Ended the day at: 69,817.
Goal for this book is around 90K.
Total for the day: 921 words
On my mind
Would’ve had more words today, but I’m at this point in the novel where I know where I want the next phase to go, but I haven’t built the bridge to get there. It’s like I have the front part finished and I see the end part, but that middle is going . . . hmm. So I went back and read through a bunch of chapters and decided to try and insert a scene/chapter of some basic things that may pave the way for using them later on. Or not. This is the part where the writer just bleeds or throws mud at the paper and hopes for the best!
As long as the words are flowing and a semblance of story comes, it’s fine. It’s just a bit sluggish right now. Editing is where the magic happens. Then that dirt covered diamond is chipped and, shined up, and made into something incredible.
Working on the cover for Into The Midst and may premier it a little later. Have to make a page for it too.
Why do I do this & can you participate? Answer.
