Life Gets in the Way

Yesterday, I had plans to get a quick oil change, before our evening plans.  I had my appointment for 4:30 pm.  I thought I would be done in 45 minutes to an hour.

I noticed the tires were starting to wear some time ago, but i wasn’t expecting to leave the shop with a new set of tires, a new air filter and a new drive belt.  They showed me all the problems, and they were legitimately old tires, belt and filter.

I wasn’t expecting to spend three hours there or to spend hundreds of dollars on repairs, but sometimes the unexpected happens.  You’ve got to deal with it and keep moving forward.

With this delay and few others things that came up yesterday, I didn’t have the time to write.  I did give up or quit.  I got back to my 1,200 Words A Day Challenge today.  My time was not as limited, but I felt like my creativity was today.  I wrote 1,201 words.

Thanks,
J. Allen Tucker

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

Finishing a Chapter

I did not write as much as I would have liked today. However, I finished a chapter. I am still trying to maintain a daily writing regiment, which has gone well for the month thus far. I have written everyday except one. Did you work on anything today? Have you followed me on Twitter and Instagram?  The links are on the right side of the page.
