Have Two Tmelines Become Passé?

I wrote exactly 1,200 words today. It has been more time consuming the last three days, and I think part of the problem is there are so many different ways the story could go. I have not made an outline or a plan. I have some vague notions of some things, and some more defined ideas about other things.

Today was day twelve of my challenge. I think some of the material written today is the best so far. I have added some new elements, that I think makes the narrative better.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m primarily dealing with the early 90s.  However, a key part of the story takes place in the mid 80s. The prologue features a scene that takes place in the 80s.

I have nt decided if that part of the story will continue as a secondary timeline, throughout the novel. I think that is a cool technique, but at the same time, it has been done a lot. Let me know in the comments, if you think that two timelines as a story telling device has become passé.

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.

Twitter, Word Count and Third Draft

Thanks again to the writing community on Twitter. Yesterday, I hit 250 Twitter followers! Thanks everyone. Today, I wrote 633 words. I finished another chapter in my second novel, and I also made a few small additions to my first novel’s third draft. Thanks, J. Allen Tucker

Starting a Sequel

While promoting my first novel, I haven’t written much. Today, I wrote 711 words and got started on the sequel to Sylas Sterling and the Lucas County Curse. I do have another work in progress, that I will return to occasionally. A random part of the process seemed interesting to me. As I was starting a new word document, I decided to save it, like everyone should to make sure that they don't lose their work. I realized that I needed a name for the document. At first, I considered, SylasSterling2, but I wanted something more creative. I went with a title that I will not share here, since the working title could be the actual title. I will say that it included the word “Two.” Time will tell if this title sticks. For the first book, I change the main character name and book title name multiple times trying to find something unique that I really liked. Thanks, J. Allen Tucker
