So I did it!
I wrote the first draft of my second novel! It sits at 51,449 words. Now to set it aside for a while and work on revising my first novel…
I decided to do it this way because it would mean that I would have a better idea of the world, the characters, and where things were heading. What I really need to figure out, though, is how many books long the story arc will be. Will this be a trilogy or will it go on longer? Or maybe this will be a trilogy and then I’ll write other stories dealing with the world afterwards. I’m not really sure. I think this is because of how massive the ideas I had back in high school were for the world that morphed into this one. I will have to figure out how much exploration we will have into this world. Perhaps it will be several novels and then many short stories. In any case, it’s something I need to think more on.
Writing the ending for this one was rather hard. I won’t say why because that would spoil things, since to explain the why I would have to give details and then those details would give away several things that I don’t want given away. The ending also needs work, but that will be made easier once I figure out whether this is the second of three or of many.
Right now I’m taking a break from writing. (No you’re not!) Fine, I’m taking a break from writing novels and scripts. It’ll probably be only for a few days, but just long enough for me to recuperate. So maybe I’ll get around to drawing and posting what I end up drawing. Still, my characters are in my ears, are in my eyes, here among the novel writing tries.
Hmmm…. I suppose I should mention that I’ll be in the States for a few weeks so that I may be a groomsman at the wedding of one of my good friends (who happens to have been one of my groomsmen). I’m rather excited to be a part of that! And not so excited to be away from my lovely wife for several weeks. T.T
Since I’ve basically been cloistered here in my apartment this month writing, I don’t really have much else of note to write about. So until next time!
Blessings and peace!
