Backstory for My Second Novel

Today, I continued work on my next novel. I started expanding on the backstory that lays the foundation for the events of the book.

It has been interesting taking a second chance on something that I started so long ago.  At this point, the original text is more of an outline with some characters and actions.

The backstory was never fleshed out.  I have a much better idea now, how this world became the way it is.

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.
