1200 Words A Day Is Hard

I challenged myself to write 1,200 words a day on my novel. The first several days seemed easier. The last two days have been more of a challenge. I’ve written in smaller chunks of time, until I felt like I was at a stopping point. I didn’t force myself to keep going right then. I took a break.

Today, I wrote a little while, at the local coffee shop, and then I stopped. I wrote a few minutes on my iPad and stopped. I finally spent around an hour working on writing this evening, and ended up with a little over my 1,200 word quota.

One thing that I’ve been considering is where is my story going. I am making this up as I go along, so I t’s been fun thinking of different scenarios and different problems for the hero to solve.

Keep writing my friends.

Writing and Planning

I have continued working on the second Sylas Sterling novel. I’ve written about 2,250 words so far. The first book was nearly 49,000, so I’ve got a ways to go. In addition to starting that book, I’ve been brainstorming. So, I’ve also got some general idea of what I want the third book to be able about. If all goes according to plan, I hope to have a comic book available to tie into the third books release. If you have any feedback, I’d take it into consideration while the next book is in progress. One other note in regards to the first book. I made some additional corrections after the initial publication, so if you come across some punctuation errors I think they have mostly been fixed.
