I set a goal of writing 1500 words a day during Lent. So far I have lived up to that goal.
I’ve written over 10,000 words since last week on the first Gabby Wells prequel called The Homecoming Incident. If things go well, I’ll be able to push myself and complete the first draft over the weekend. That would be about 5000 words a day. I don’t know if I’ll have the time to write that much, but that’s what I’d like to do.
Then, I could put The Homecoming Incident aside for a little bit, give it time to rest, before revisiting it and making changes.
During this past week, I’ve also been thinking about roll out strategy changes. We’ve lined up our next set of beta readers for Water & Blood, however, now I was considering that the novellas may need to come first. It builds character history and eases the reader into the tone of the novels.
I haven’t decided anything for certain, but I want to finish this first novella as soon as possible so that I can move forward in one direction or another. I’ll have more on that in an upcoming podcast.
