Three Easy Steps to Writing?

A few days ago, I started writing again.  I sat down at my desk, and I just started.  I think that's the hardest part of the battle sometimes.

Last year, I decided that I wanted to draw again.  I didn't make a New Year's resolution per say, but I challenging myself to draw everyday.  By the end of 2017, I had complete 450 sketches, with more sketches that were rough drafts or concepts etc.  I completed more finished artwork last year, than probably the entire rest of my life.

I think my new 1200 word challenge will do the same for me.  If I continue this process, I will exceed the word count of the longest story that I've ever written on July 7th.

I had to write a lot of papers in college, so it might take a while for me to surpass that total.  However, if I keep this up, like I plan to, it will happen sooner rather than later.

Challenge Yourself!

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.
