Well, folks, another day has passed and I have another set of writing completed.
As you might have read in my update yesterday, I started doing NaNoWriMo this year, mostly because of the coincident timing of it all. So far, I am quite pleased with how the book is turning out.
This one was a weird one for me. You see, I always do an outline when I am working on a novel project, and this time was, of course, no exception.
However, I will admit I went a little overboard on the outline with “The Eternals Game” (That’s the tentative title for this new one).
While I usually dedicate a fair amount of space to an outline, my previous word record for them was about 6000 words. This time? 17000 words.
“Oh my goodness, Ira,” I can hear you saying. “That’s just excessive!”
Yes, dear reader, it certainly is.
However, it has definitely given me a chance to really flow with this book, shockingly quick, in fact.
Right now, the book is sitting at just shy of 31000 words and I am at a little less than the halfway mark, Chapter wise (at least, if I stick fully to the outline). My fingers are a tad sore, but that’s not unexpected.
I expect I will, if I keep up the pace, have the book done by the end of November, and can then move on to a couple of other projects that have been kicking around in my head.
Thursday may be a slower writing day for me, since I have 2 different shows to record and broadcast, but we’ll see what happens. If i can get more done in the morning hours, I will probably meet my goal for the day.
Oh, I did get some really good news today, as well!
Penitence, my new book coming out on Friday, is now available for pre-order!
If you guys want to grab it before everyone else, you can find it on Amazon!
