This past week was not good for my writing, I’m afraid. I did finish my pre-editor edit of Into the Eternal Wood, and the first chapter of the novella will be going out to my mailing list early tomorrow morning. My wife had several interviews this week, and for moral support I usually go along with, which reduced the time and motivation I had for writing still more. Even so, I went from about 5,000 words to 8,500 words on Halls of Power.
This week looks to have far fewer interruptions, so I’ll be getting to work and hope to have over 20k words by next Sunday. I’ve realized that writing on Saturday and Sunday were killing me somewhat, so instead I’m working on the book Monday-Friday, with a goal of 2,500 words a day, minimum. If I can get my inspiration properly rolling, I may have Halls of Power done much earlier than my end goal, but I don’t dare promise that.
Incidentally, once Halls of Power is in the editing phase, I’m going to figure out which ideas I like the most for my next book/trilogy, and put them up as a poll to see what people like the most.
