This will be the last really short post. I promise.
First book of the year is complete!
Tonight, finally, hit ‘the end’ on Almost-Super Heroes 2. The book, currently, weighs in around 100,000 words (100,068 to be exact). I’m sure there will be some that will hit the cutting room floor as part of what I wrote was me finding my way to the story. I’ll weigh the pros and cons of each chapter before taking the ax out.
But it’s done. I’m excited tomorrow to be jumping into V&A Shipping 3. I’ve had that first chapter nagging my brain for a month now and I’m pretty sure that’s a large part of what was slowing me down on ASH2. Now that I’ve gotten one task out of the way, it’s time to tackle another.
I had wanted to be done with ASH2 and V&A 3 prior to NaNoWriMo, but hey, I’m still going to try and write 3 more books before the end of the year. I discovered one step, turning off the darn TV.
It’s a big step and I’m still finding myself itchy and reaching for the remote, but the more I stay away, the more words I’ll get done. The country will solve the problems without me. Doesn’t mean I won’t stay informed and won’t vote. Those are things that are very important to me.
So it writing. And I can do something about my writing right now. I can’t fix the country until it’s time to vote.
On that note, 4am will get here too early. I’m off to bed.
Until Next Time!
